Hook Or By Look!

You humans and your eyes. You think you are so wise. You see but don't see. Are you following me? I guess we shall see. See, again from me. A see type spree. Don't give that look to me.

What's in a look?
Could write a book.
Whoops, already do that.
Excuse the rhyming cat.

Look you looked.
Your look has been booked.
But did your look see,
What came to be?

Look up, look down.
Look driving through town.
Look in, look out.
Look and shout.

Twist and look.
Look what I did at my nook.
Catch that look?
See, off the hook.

Hook of the look.
Look of the hook.
Look that you took,
From castle to rook.

All from a look.
That one took.
Simple as see.
Following me?

Look beyond, look within.
Look until you can win.
Look around, look without.
Look at you become a trout.

Fish out of water,
Or maybe an otter.
A funny looking beaver?
Look, a meat cleaver.

Look, but do you see?
Looking beyond thee?
Stuck in a look.
Hook or by crook.

Stuck with the look.
Not seeing you cook.
Look and not see.
Look, done with my spree.

Are you looking at me strange? Look, some spare change. Oops, you missed out. Do you look while out and about? Or do you just drive or walk or strut or wiggle your butt, as you go from hut to hut? Look but not see has sure come to many. They are on a phone giving sass. They wouldn't even see a billboard featuring my little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

  5. Agree with Bijoux. What's really bad is when the accident is on the other side of the freeway and people have slowed down to gawk.
    Everybody look - what's going down? (Name that tune!)

  9. There are so many things at which one can look
    one of the best of these is a very good book
    and if one finds such a book that one can look
    one hardly can find time to cook!!

    1. And if you're like me
      Cook once a week at your sea
      That will be no problem at all

  10. I am guilty of this...but I am from NY. I am trained to just look and move, move, move. Lol the real question is, what does any of this have to do with a meat cleaver?

  19. ha, a look can say and do so much- you are very right!!

  20. People are so plugged into the internet now they don't see the real world around them. Even at concerts people are on their phones tweeting. Now me, when I'm out walking, I'm either looking up at the sky to see the birds or down at the ground to see the plants. I'm sure people think I'm odd when they drive by and see me, but I don't care.

    1. haha let them look

  30. We used to play I Spy
    While driving in the car
    Passed the time
    When the trip was far

    But what I really like
    Is observing folk
    The things people do
    Could make you choke
    Or give you a stroke
    Or leave you broke
    Or make you smoke
    Or drink a coke
    Or jab and poke
    Or crack a yolk
    Or enjoy a soak

    I can't stop
    It is no joke!

  31. So many people have been hit by cars
    if they are lucky they see only stars.
    they are not dead
    they are stupid, 'nough said.
    Why? They were texting on their phone
    not looking at all, like a drone.
    No one looks any more
    they are mindless and are quite a bore.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yep, mindless as can be
      And deserve to get hit at their sea
      But they'll still blame the car
      Because they didn't look near and far

  35. Sight is awesome,
    it’s good to see.
    Gives one a clue about
    when to flee.
    Oncoming car?
    Should have stayed at the bar.
    Perp with a gun?
    Time to run.
    Hurricane coming?
    Don’t bother humming.

  36. I love playing with my camera, so I look all the time. Sometimes I see plenty that I don't want to, but most often, can find some pretty spectacular things to look at. My kids don't do this though, and I think they are missing out on the world around them. It's a shame.
