The Avonmouth Flies










Image - by kind permission of GST GAVART of ARKWORKS...


Avonmouth flies
sitting on pies
cut-glassy eyes
massive in size
………….

Greeted with cries
black hairy thighs
crawling up walls
greeting demise
….

Spotted and blotted
no one knows why
flies fill the skies
flies on the rise
…...

Slow fly can lie
high fly gets by
low fliers die
loving the pie
……

Sticking to papers
fly end is nigh
40 watt fry
zapped on the fly
…….

Spray in their eyes
brought down to size
swirling on floors
buzzing on doors
…….

Getting their highs
sticky end flies
papers with vapours
Stick legs must die
……...

Flying in groups
Swarming and swoops
marvellous flies
currants in skies
……….

looping the loop
squadrons-a-hoop
black fly cloud spy
by fly by fly
……….

pie maker lies
must sell the pies
no flies he sighs
there are no flies
…..
