low hanging fruit

how does a fly get so fat before the solstice
what could he be feasting on
and how in the world
did he make his way inside the house

I had my chance a couple of times
to either stun him or catch him outright
casting him back out to the great wide open
but I decided the better of it
and went about my own business

now that I think about it
I wonder how many spiders are living
comfortably within my abode
knowing full well the dullest of houseflies
are the lowest hanging fruit there is

may two thousand twenty

  1. Ι have wondered the same thing myself a number of times. Spider webs everywhere and that pest of a fly ruining my dinner. Thank you so much for sharing!!!
