A Flea And A Fly In A Flue

Rating: 5.0


A flea and a fly in a flue
Were imprisoned, so what could they do?
Said the fly, "let us flee!"
"Let us fly!" said the flea.
So they flew through a flaw in the flue.

flue a duct for smoke and waste gases produced by a fire, a gas heater, a power station, or other fuel-burning installation. no air rises up the chimney, usually because the flue is blocked
