We Sewed Our Eyes Shut and Saw Such Wonderful Things

I was thinking about how my eye exam looked, to me, and also of an African folk tale about the Conceited Spider. He took out a needle and thread and sewed up his eye. He went to the Tiger and said, “Can you not see? My eye is sewn up and now I can see such wonderful things that I must sing about them.”
“Sew up my eyes!” said the Tiger, “then I too can see these surprising sights.”
And so the clever Spider had tricked the Tiger.
