The Wrath Of Wives

 

The fly came in

through window screen

no motive known

just sight unseen

it buzzed the wife

she became unhinged

in anger then

sought her revenge

 

The swatter found

along with her wrath

from room to room

she chased fly's path

the fight was brought

the battle blazed

she sought the fly

for days and days

 

Then one off day

the fly's mistake

it landed on

her dinner plate

and she in glee

just could not wait

she whacked the fly

and sealed its fate

 

No more the fly

it just fell flat

a swift demise

a signal that

fly's lives are doomed

and short at best

on luck and plates

they should not rest

 

The lesson then

do not offend

or curtains for

both flies and men

who dare to question

the wrath of wives

with certainty

they'll shorten lives.

Don, flies are bright, thought you knew!
(Can get out of any flue!)
Will join with a flea, if necessary,
And fly with that flea onto you!

Dk it looks you been bit slack
Letting screens get holes
For little flies to buzz right in
And on your wife, make goal 😛

I was just sure she would have smacked that fly on a plate full of food...with imaginable consequrnces!
So much fun to have poems like this to read. The ear enjoys and the funny bone enjoys and all those tight muscles in one's shoulders enjoy!
