"Dear Harriette: My husband has a wandering eye, and I need him to stop this behavior. Last week we went on a dinner date, and my husband's neck was on a swivel. In walks a group of ladies, one of whom caught my husband's eye. This made me furious, but I did not want to make a scene in the restaurant. What should I say to him?---Private Eyes. (from Harriette Cole's advice column 'Sense and Sensitivity')
Proletariat or mogul,
Most every man does like to ogle.
When pretty women slither by,
He'll cast on them a roving eye.
In full disclosure and confession,
I do it too but with discretion.
It's in our genes, a trait we share:
When beauty's near, we like to stare.
But if you value married life,
Don't ogle when you're with your wife.
