Jerry Reynolds

Circle Fly’s


A politician spreading lies
Was busy swatting fly’s
Attracted to his shiny head.
“They won’t bite” it was alleged
“It’s just old circle fly’s
You see them mostly in the grasses,
Circling around horses asses.”
The politician exclaimed.
Though disrespect could be claimed,
All the same -
“It’s hard to fool them fly’s.”

    😊 Great little yarn of universal applicability, Jerry. Or as some folks round here might claim, that polly had brains where his bum shud 'a been.

    Like the flag - symbol of decline....?

    Thanks, Dave. "Polly had brains... " I love that line. We have a "Three Crapper" (useless) right now. Were working on it.

      You deserve a prize for this one (thinking of a man with a huge comb-over who only abused you for a single term)/

      • Jerry Reynolds

        Thanks, Dusk. Hopefully, a lot of shadows linger.

        Haha. Nice one Jerry


        There seems to be a swarm of flies hovering around now a days.
        Loved it

        this, like most politically themed humour
        is genuinely witty and worth an honest
        bellyful laughter - spectacle..
        or it would be
        if it weren't so morosely and depressingly
        too: true...!
        good write Jerry, too good - sadly, for me
