(common) Sense?

(common) Sense? short poem

Uploaded by Shreya Shah


They hear but hardly listen,
They look but barely see,
They hear loud noises;
And roll their eyes again.
They see her blush,
Her hair, disheveled – not lush.
Resume their favourite past time
They jump –
To conclusions.
If only they listened,
The noises were her screams.
If only they saw,
Her red face, were the prints of his paw.
