Guilty Onlooker

One day i watched a housefly perish. 
A memory i'd never hold or cherish.
A soul escaped his writhing mass
magnified by looking glass.
I swore i'd seen its final breath
and knew i'd been its cause of death.

Insignificant i know God slap my wrist!
Oh lord i wish the fly swat missed.
