Sure the B’s are Free

 

 

  they overfly & pee on me

 

    they drop B bombs on me

 

      they spout winged philosophy on me

 

       they fan me with wee wings

 

         they gossip ‘bout dead loved-ones

 

          they sup-up polluted air so fair

 

            they spawn 1002 schmaltzy movies

 

              they inspire saintly Brit writers to spout quotable things

 

                they collide with jetliner

 

                  causing them to crash land on me

 

                    i B-fly die

 

                      & dream

 

                        after death

 

                           of

 

                        butterflies

 

                              ............
