The Flea - A poem by John Donne. About the poem - 'The Flea' is a complex yet almost hilarious conversation between two lovers, where the young man uses his exceptionally persuasive skills to coax his lady love to sleep with him. Throughout the poem Donne uses a skilled combination of tone, suggestive words and double meaning, to present an argument which is so clever that it might actually lead to the speaker having his way.
