The fastest fly in the land
loved to perch on any hand.
To show her speed at beating slaps
she sat on noses during naps.
She also liked to hang around
a barbecue or picnic ground.
But woe, alas, she grew too bold.
She sailed from her cottage while suffering from a cold.
She landed on the nose of a man named Jack.
She started to laugh, and the hand went WHACK!
From that day on she limped when she flew.
Her wings were bent. Her antennae, too.
