Flies

Flies

A Poem by Belle Starr
"

Positive Fly aspect: Fly fishing!!

"

These nasty ol’ flies

Are ugly little things,

With their big bug eyes

And their see-thru wings.

 

Some fly sonic fast!

Almost faster than the swat!

They are frightful little beasts

And rarely ever caught.

 

They swarm around sugar,

And land on your food!

They are horrid pesky creatures

And don’t leave when shooed.

 

Here comes one now…

It landed on my plate…

I raise the swat…

He tries to get away…

TOO LATE!!!

This was funny. I love it. Armed and dangerous to flies. Very nice flow and I like the font you chose. It adds to the sort of slapstick (or should I say fly-swat?) verse.

😆Love it! I love the last stanza. Your use of ellipses is very effective.

Very entertaining!

Lol! I couldn't agree more, Belle, they are horrid little beasts, especially when you're trying to eat outside.
Thank you for making me laugh. This is delightfully whimsical.
How about adding a verse about those horrid horseflies that take chunks out of you when you're riding? :)
Very nicely done, as always, my friend.

LIve the rhythm you’ve written this in so carefree and fresh- flies are a pest- when I lived on a small holding and in our farm if you didn’t have sieves in front of the windows they would be everywhere- I wonder what part they actually serve besides giving us a pain?? Enjoyed the read🌹

Hey hey! And it all ends well.....ish. The poor fly isn't particularly well (lol). But a fun little tale nonetheless about a pest. Short and amusing. Well done!
