Humorous Poem

I was sat watching tv one evening and I was being bothered by a fly and that gave me the inspiration for the first two lines!

An Annoying Fly


Published by Family Friend Poems March 29, 2024 with permission of the Author.

I'm buzzing around your room
I'm buzzing in the air
I know I'm really annoying
I prefer bald heads to hair

I'm flying around the light
I've landed in your drink
I paddle my dirty feet around
then off to the kitchen sink

I know you want to swat me
but I'm far too fast for you
Your cat stares in wonder
I know what it wants to do

To catch me in its claws
and devour me with a crunch
A winged chicken nugget
would do nicely for its lunch

But around and around I go
then on to the window frame
Painless head-banging
again and again and again

You wonder why I'm so energetic
after three days without food
But if you ate what I ate
you'd be in a happy mood

A dirty pan, a baked bean tin
are all good meals for me
Unattended dinners
or even your cup of tea

But outside I eat things
that are far oh far much worse
You really don't want to know
they're long overdue a hearse

But then my final day arrives
the day of my demise
I see you with a can of spray
that says for killing flies

You head towards me grinning
with your maniacal stare
So I dash for the window
and find it open, where

I reach for my freedom
and turn around to look
But fly into a spiders web
where I'm held fast and stuck

And the spider heads towards me
with its drooling fangs
I can see he's almost ready
to put an end to my days plans

But I have an ace to play
I won't be today's daily dine
So I engage my turbo boost
and make a high pitch whine

I manage to break free
and escape into the air
Then disappear into the blue
a fly without a care

But now I'm feeling hungry
I need to eat but cannot chew
So I'll find something revolting
and do what flies must do!
