Once Upon A Time At The Beach

I was sitting shirtless on the sand When a nosy horse-fly sat on my hand I was going to swat him, shoot-fly away But instead I watched him, till he flew away As the minutes passed, he came on back I thought to smack him, but I cut him slack Again, I watched him...as he watched me until he flew, out to the sea I watched him land, atop a wave Thought to myself, that fly is brave He would probably make something, a tasty dish A bird, a crab, a hungry fish But he flew on back, landed on my hand As I sat there shirtless, on the sand So, we shared some time, just he and I A shirtless man, a brave horse-fly Your Favorite Rhyme Poem In August 2021 Poetry Contest Sponsor: Constance La France Written 8/6/2021
