Ode to the Fly

The fly, the fly,

oh me, oh my,

it gets in my hair,

it sits on my chair.

In spite of all “Flit”

it gets in Your ….

and then in my soup.

oh my, what a scoop!

It is on terms

with all sorts of germs:

Dysenteria

– oh madre mia –

Typhoid Malaria

– good bye, Sanitaria.

When left in the open

it’s ill disposed,

and therefore, amigo,

Your fly – keep it closed.
