I write what I feel…

Tit for Tat

I feel the urge to write,

The words are buzzing round my brain –

What’s that? A fly,

Intruding on my train of thought.

Out, out damn fly…

Leave, I say, you ought

To be ashamed

To butt into my mind.

The words are gone,

Atrophied at their point of birth,

And you have won, or think you have…

SPLAT! Take that!

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people!

    • Thanks, John. I had two of them in here yesterday and I swear they know what a danger to them a fly-swatter is, because when I picked it up they disappeared only to reappear the minute I put it down!

    • Ben, I thank you for taking the time to read my work. I really appreciate it. Yes, this poem was written tongue-in-cheek – I couldn’t resist…it just came out!
