Skirmish prompt: Look

This is a quick nod to our pandemic culture and the inherent incongruities

Lyrics: 

look at me

V1
at the opera
Italian arias
La Traviata
poor Violetta

drama and action
culture and fashion
music and passion
oh listen and look
look at me

C
look at me
look at me
at the opera
in my pajamas
in front of a screen

look at me
look at me
at the ballet
in my pajamas
eating ice cream

V2
at the ballet
pointe pointe plié
Swan Lake tragedy
Tchaikovsky masterpiece

graceful and magic
moving and tragic
lasting and classic
oh look and listen
look at me

C
look at me
look at me
at the opera
in my pajamas
in front of a screen

look at me
look at me
at the ballet
in my pajamas
eating ice cream

B
so full of culture
right here on the couch
at operas and ballets
look at me
you will see
I am no slouch

C
look at me
look at me
at the opera
in my pajamas
in front of a screen

look at me
look at me
at the ballet
in my pajamas
eating ice cream

What a great idea for this skirmish! One we can all relate to and such images this brings!

It's good! I've think we've all had to take a look at ourselves and everything especially at this time. Some great lines in there. Really cool.

I love the unexpected contrast here between the elegance of the opera/ballet versus the audience at home in their pajamas. Really strong lyric, great job!

This is so great - I see myself in your words!
I don't know if I want to go back to concerts and shows in person again, now that I've enjoyed so many (including opera!) from my couch.
