On the Wall

A fly on the wall,

We’d all like to be.

A different perspective,

On the world we would see.


No one would know,

That we were so near.

Gathering gossip,

On those we hold dear.


Our size makes it easy,

To wander about.

Close and then far,

Even inside and out.


There’s only one problem,

I can see from this blotter.

Wielded with accuracy,

The dreaded fly swatter!

    Hahaha! Not so easy being a fly on the wall! One minute you’re a gossip-gathering machine and the next minute you’re splat on that wall. Perhaps the flies would do better if they kept out of people’s business!

    That was great, Pam! How often we have used that term: “Oh to be a fly on the wall…” As long as no sticky paper or flyswatters are about! It’s actually a good metaphor for those who stick their noses in businesses to which they do not belong!

        You my friend or anything but anonymous! You have a smile that could light up a room and the voice that needs to be heard. I am listening.
