flies of summer

flies of summer
you might live longer
if you'd stop buzzing
I wrote this, or a version of it, a couple of summers ago. It's been gathering dust ever since, but "buzz" reminded me of it, so I thought I'd trot it out.

You point out a very ggod point. But, some "creatures" are too proud of their noise to know when to stop!! Love it!!

Thanks, floots, vaughn, and polona. You know what they [used to?] say in Hollywood: If you want to send a message, call Western Union.

If I am buzzing
I'm still living
