Shoo fly

Shoo fly please do not bother me

I do not want you buzzing around my food

Can’t you tell you’re putting me in a bad mood

Why can’t you go outside and fly by that tree

You will gain so much more by being out in the fresh air

Yet you continue to buzz in my ear and land on my head

I really just wish you would drop dead

Or maybe just go hover around that pear

 

I am starving all I want is to fill my belly with this fresh food

I’ve been traveling all day without even eating a crumb

I do not understand why this human is being so rude

Can’t they tell I am not just some bum

If they actually thought about my feeling I wouldn’t be shooed

These selfish humans do not even appreciate when I hum

    Nikki,
    I really like the contrasting voices you picked here, they work super well. I love the beginning line too.
