The Fly Talks Back
Provoked by political scandal, Emily takes another look.
I buzzed a lot before I died
Wow -- that is fantastic!
But we're not really supposed to feel sorry for the fly, right? I mean, this is satire?
I deleted my comment because, on re-reading, I could see how it might be taken badly, even though I's just horsing around. I was born with a contrary nature. The part about Lydia's genius was accurate though.
I read your previous comment, and you were right. Thanks. I get it now. I didn't take it badly. It isn't just some sort of false humility. I really am very dense about poetry.
What really impresses me is that you deleted your comment and it doesn't have a place-holder (with the name of the person who commented) that says, "This comment deleted by a blog administrator." That's what has happened to me whenever I've deleted comments on my google blog. I'd love to know your secret for making a comment truly disappear.
I don't just delete comments. I annihilate them.
And that from an actual poet.
Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner!
And from another.
