The Chosen One

They said i was the chosen one
chosen by the mankind
one who catches fly at will
those flies now i must find

seven in one attempt
was the best i ever cought
but to catch those flies in hand
not a single dime i got

so if you got some flies at home
and if you want them dead
fly that veil inside your store
or sleeps beneath the bed

next time when you would see them buzz
or hear their brm brm sound
no dollar would i charge to catch
only just fifty pound

so if i catch twenty of them
fifty is the price for one
no discount please expect from me
once my job is done

    A magnet for catching the flies is going to be invented by the Japanese soon! Just for house flies! I read it.somewhere. But before that happens you will have caught all the flies. But the way catch them is more important and so this proposal is great. Yet another Kanav Justa poem for honouring this December and the PH forum... Thank you for penning down this unique piece.

    During summer when fruits ripe, especially with jack fruits going over ripe and rotten, plenty of flies come buzzing! Then
