No More Flies in the School Kitchen

by Bruce Lansky
There were lots of flies in the kitchen.
The cook didn’t know what to do.
The principal made an inspection.
He swatted some flies with his shoe.
Now there are no flies in the kitchen.
The cook’s in a very good mood.
The flies are not quite so delighted.
They died after eating the food.
