The discarded Jester

The discarded Jester

began to fester;

the flies had a field day,

and the field flies – they also had a day,

a day, and a night,

and a knight passing by,

saw the discarded Jester

and asked him, ‘Do you want a job?’


‘As you can see, my liege

I am under siege

by flies and field flies, too;

I will gladly work for you.’

said the Jester, whose troubles

all seemed so far away,



And so began

the Jester’s career

working for Sir Far’n’ Near.
