My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

August 5, 2011 “fly on the wall”

“fly on the wall”


As I was having dinner tonight,

near the table where I sat

I saw an unsettling sight.

On the wall alit a house fly

wearing a cowboy hat.


The hat was brown fur felt and quite fine,

but the fly all in all was droll…

for it’s John B. Stetson when you go out to dine.

Any cowboy or fly worth a damn

wouldn’t be caught dead in a Resistol!
