Flitty’s Purposes Flitty’s Twinkle
Up on a cloud and far away,
There sits ‘Flitty’ on a Summers Day. Is this the twinkle of our “Flitty”,
What does it do? No one quite knows,
It actually quite likes to wiggle its toes. Famed of fable and of ditty?
It likes to take a look, at this and that,
And wonder where everybody’s at. It seems that Flitty’s been to sleep,
Once in a while it will wander over,
And Sniff the Kiss of a Bee on clover. But now has woken to help and heap
But should the Bee become aware,
Of Flitty’s gaze and helpful stare, Upon all those whom fortune favours,
Or try to see young Flitty’s face,
Bang! - Flitty was never there in the ﬁrst place. Wealth surpassing all the neighbours.
And that doesn’t mean that Flitty’s shy,
But if you have ever wondered why Freedoms scarce imagined come
The tick goes tock or the tock goes tick,
It’s just another Flitty trick. To those upholding Freedoms won.
Some go for Gold and dig in the ground.
Not Flitty, It moves Thought around. So like the Raven in the sky,
And not your naughty stinky thought,
Just what Flitty likes, or what it feels it ought. If YOU have ever wondered if
It ﬂits over this and hovers over that,
Who knows, Flitty might be sitting under your hat. The wind is free upon the cliff,
When you think that Flitty’s gone, or was never there,
It’s then that Flitty will give you a scare. Or if light is that free too.
So what is this purpose of this ditty?
Or indeed are the purposes of our Flitty? Recognise this…
The answer to that lies somewhere in the middle
Of this ‘Flitty de Flit’ or perky riddle. All the beauty and freedom that is true,
So riddle me this or riddle me that, Resides in YOU!
But just take a peek under Your hat.

If you want her, she will run from you.
If you chase her you’re dammed.
You can run around the world for her,
You’ll kiss an empty hand.
But the moment that you turn your back,
She’ll dance across the sand,
She will shower you with kisses,
She will give you all her land.
She would lay her life before you,
She would give all her pearls,
And that no small memento,
For she’s the guidon of all girls.
“Danania”* is her name.

To be like gossamer her game.
And the harder that you play for her
You’ll play into your shame.
For the wisest of the wise have been captured and restrained,
By the merest whispered mention of Danania, by name.
The Dance of Danania is seductive and sweet.
With one twist she has the rulers of Empires at her feet,
And as they shout her name and worship her,
Call Danania across the land,
Those truly wise look down and mark their footsteps in
