A Stupid Fly

A stupid fly tried to swim In my glass filled with a beer But finally the beast made it to the rim And when flying away it showed me its rear

You painted a witty scenario, dear friend. Flies always get in food and drink when we are eating outdoors here. Perhaps it's the same in Germany. Guess you had to toss out your beer! (They carry germs.) But I did get a laugh, especially from reading your last line. Don't let the fly have the last laugh, however. Protect your beer! LOL Still laughing. Enjoyed very much. Love, Carolyn

That must have been one beer you did not finish drinking. Good humorous write.
