you see me when I’m swimming Let safari rules apply: Please observe me from a distance, Don’t disturb with wave or cry.
With my glasses in my locker And the angle of the light I wouldn’t know my closest friend And so I may be impolite.
I’m liable to startle wildly, Veering then from lane to lane, Causing splashing and confusion And possibly a bit of pain.
If you really want to see me, Then please wait until I’m dry, Clad and wearing varifocals – Standard social rules apply.
– Kate Saxon.
