A Fly’s Tale (limerick)

Updated on January 30, 2015

I remember fly landing on nose

And piece of wood that my wife chose

My thoughts turned complex

As distance she checks

And what happened next heaven knows

      It is possible to laugh and cringe (in sympathy for the unlucky husband) simultaneously.
