If I were to be a fly on a ''wall'' I would like to be 500ft long and around 100 high,
it would be good to keep my poetic consciousness, and I would surely try!
try the highest altitude, and my top speed through the sky,
OH! then to scan the seas and oceans, and find the deepest pit!
I would gaze down on all creation, and make a moonlight flit,
I would seek a demolition site, and there come in to land,
upon a wall around my match yes, that would suit my plans!
then with my grip unmatchable & a tug from my humming wings,
I would tear off a chunk to take away with its reinforcing bands!
I’d use my super sensitive hearing to find that dratted man,
or there may be many in different places l the entire world around
OH! be it Beijing, London or N. Y. City,
When the fly on his flying wall is finished they won't be looking pretty!
and when my slammin's over and I’ve really made a hit!
I’ll gather any I missed first time round, now where was that ocean pit?…
