Two Flies, devoid of delicacy, decency or tact
Performed upon my luncheon tray the procreative act.
Quite without contrition, they refused to call a halt,
Intent upon coition,
‘Though I peppered them with salt.
At length the She-Fly wearied
Of his passionate attack
And shook her paltry partner
Like a raincoat
From her back…
Bemused, distrait, diverted.
He lay there scarcely spent
To be pulled along inverted
Like a clown
When off she went.
Her trampled wings she mastered
Looking flustered as she fled
The little bastard
In the Mustard
(St John’s Wood 1985)
