“lizard eyes”

Written for:  The Twiglets #307 - lizard eyes

Wearing a polyester emerald green suit,
and pointy shoes, the lounge lizard's
eyes narrow, as he catches sight
of a woman smiling from the audience.

After an accident,
the lizard had to be 
fit for new glasses.

           An unfortunate elderly Wizard
           had face and eyes of a lizard.
               He wore a sombrero
           to shade face and not scare
    off advice seekers. Hat blows off in blizzard.

    I completely forgot about ‘Linolium Lizards’ – that’s about where the twin nephews are at the moment!!
    Fun verses each to their own.
