Massaging the Eyeballs

Massaging the Eyeballs

It has been suggested our eyeballs need a massage
Perhaps these dark shadows it might camouflage
But I think the reason is not just cosmetic
Perhaps it’s intended to be therapeutic

One website says it can stimulate the vagus nerve
Slowing the heart rate, relieving much stress
But I don’t recommend any vigorous rubbing
Or eyewashing incurring relentless scrubbing

The eyeball massage concept is more about vision
Of things we espy in life or television
Of sights that amount to mere titillation
Which many believe are blatant temptation

The phrase ‘eye-candy’ is now commonplace
To label female tv presenters with a beguiling face
I suppose hunky men might make a similar claim
Their rugged looks – their passport to fame

In the world of high tech there are endless images
Used to grab our attention, to pass on their messages
Whether we consider our eyes are thus being massaged
When our settled view of the world is sabotaged

Anyway what do we do to protect precious eyes?
Avoiding sights that offend, even mesmerise
What is the answer to crack this tough nut?
It’s really quite simple, just keep your eyes shut!
