Preterition - On Sight

I cannot explain exactly what I mean but
near-sighted neighbors are plain nosy.
At close range they can read the bottom line.
Short-sighted sorts, well, I just can't say.

Far-sighted folks focus on distance
and can see the buds on the trees
in the front yard from the back forty.
Fore-sighted fellows can see ahead what is not;
short-sighted sorts, well I just can't say.

Know-sighted kindred are arrogant
looking down their noses at others.
You-sighted yahooes? somewhat selfish.
Insighted individuals can see right thru you and
short-sighted sorts, well I just can't say.
