Men, Love & Flies 

The strangest thing happened recently. My wife and I had a lot of flies in our home. We had no idea how they got in there.

We have this awesome cooker. She cooked something in it and it smelled very good. Perhaps, it was magnetic for the flies.

I think all the words are relevant for our times. The song, as many do, caused me to reflect on the words. I focused particularly on the ones below.

A man will rise

A man will fall

From the sheer fear of love

Like a fly on a wall

It’s no secret.
