Sheila's GlassesA Poem by James Horsley
Something meant to be pure, good hearted, cynical fun.
The glasses Sheila wore were the most God-awful things anyone had ever seen
Thick as the glass on the presidents limousine
One side of the frames was neon pink, the other was neon green
And across them were polka dots of yellow
They were so hideous that no one would come near Sheila
In all truth though, she was every bit as obnoxious as the glasses would have you believe
She didn’t even need them, she only wore them because she thought they were stylish
Ironically enough, years of wearing the damned things made her legally blind
And if you’ll believe it, she found a seeing-eye dog that was even more annoying than her glasses
She dyed its hair aqua marine, and led it around on a leash coated in sequins
And with every step it took, it emitted an unnecessarily loud yelp
I haven’t seen Sheila in a few years
I heard someone shot her… Dear God, I only hope they got the dog too
