Catty-ville

Could it be that she
She sighed and rolled her eyes
Eyes, judging orbs, always right
Right out of her empty head
Head on over to Catty-ville

We've all been at the wrong end of judgemental eyes. Not a good place to be.

Sioux said...

What's wrong with Martin? Cattyville is a fun place to be (sometimes).

thingy said...

Yeah, not crazy about Catty-ville, either.

Terrific magpie, Laurie.

We can never hide the judgement in our eyes even if we try not to be catty. Interesting form with repetition, like it.

Margaret Pangert said...

Very original, Laurie. I've seen that rolling, judging orb beat a few people up over in Cattyville. Sly. Good job!
