In Your Eye, From The Sky


Raining cats and dogs,

Dropping like flies.

Feels like snow,

Here’s mud in your eye.


As mad as a hornet,

As healthy as a horse.

Fit as a fiddle,

Crazy like a fox.


I hear these sayings,

Puts a smile on my face.

I looked up some,

From where, what place?


Someone came up with,

A witty way with words.

Images in my mind,

For what’s it’s worth.


But, one I find risky,

 I’d never have said.

Someone going on stage,

Go and break a leg.


That saying upsets me,

Don't say on a whim,

Would I be to blame,

If that really happened?


Just old sayings,

No need to get hyper,

But, last night’s game,

Was really a nail biter!!

      Hi Brian. Checked your Fusion it was A-1! Too bad I didn't notice to participate at the time. (Now it's closed right?)

      • WriteBeLight

        Yes. And, it did here in New England! Thanks Brian!

        Brill. I too love some of these silly phrases and have thought about putting them into a poem but you've beaten me to it. Here in the UK last nights game was England beating France in rugby in the Six Nations Cup and that was something to get you on the edge of the seat. On Saturday Wales beat Italy but sadly Scotland beat Ireland.

          So exciting when your team is in a nail biter! I do love some of these sayings. So comical! Thanks Michael.

          Very emotional and soft. I liked the part with "mud in your eye". One simply sees snow one sees "falling cats and dogs dropping like flies" the mud is in the first person's eyes! (Wouldn't it rhyme smother if it was "eyes"?).

          • WriteBeLight

            Sure, whatever works! Thanks Edward McLucky!

            Excellent poem WBL! I actually got a book that tells me where sayings come from it bothered me so much. Of course its packed away, lol. But I don't like "break a leg" either! Have a good day!--Christina

            • WriteBeLight

              Have a good day to your too. Nothing dramatic to that 🙂 I always hated that break a leg thing. Thanks Christina!

              I've often thought about where and how phrases are picked up and carried through generations. (whispering: not a fan of football. Opted to watch Calamity Jane instead) Enjoyed the poem!

              • WriteBeLight

                Don't blame you if you are not a football fan. But, I have always watched the Pats and am so extremely happy for them. Thank you and a very good morning to your Corey!
