The Fly Must Die!

by Michael Dale Sipes, Jr.


On the wall, on my head, you care not where you sit

buzzing around my head you just won’t quit

Bubbly eyes catch every movement I make

looking for your favorite food the dead await

Methodically you lay eggs in the mouth and snout

Where maggots will grow to move in and out

When they're done with their feast they retreat

To the dirt that lies just under your feet

Days go by and out emerges a new fly

Taking to the sky looking for what has died

That’s the life of a bubbly eyed pest

One that I most certainly detest

A rolled up newspaper recently read

Held firmly in my hand poised to strike

Patience pays off the fly puts up no fight

Now comes the blow to its bubbly eyed head

Smashing it to bits, that one fly dead

With that in mind, it must be said

The only good fly is one that is surely dead
