House Flies

Written by: Jack Ellison



Now what? I utter under my breath What's next on my list of subjects? I know, I'll write about house flies! That should stir things up I suspect Much maligned, they have a purpose Not sure what that purpose might be So I looked it up on good old Google They're the greatest carrier of disease That's really not what I expected to find Thought they had some redeeming factor Seems that's all these insects are good for If you can, run 'em over with a tractor Swat 'em, stomp on 'em, any old time Try aiming for the females if you can Each can lay approximately 500 eggs It's for the overall good health of man! © Jack Ellison 2012
