The Fly

Little fly
At summers play
Buzzing past
My food and tray

Art thou not
My enemy
Or art thou not
Afraid of me

I work and eat
Then go to bed
And with my hand
I'll crush thy head

Thinkest thou of life
And strength and breath
Then flee from me
And certain death

Then thou shalt be
A happy fly
Thou shalt live
And shall not die

    Sorry for being late reading your excellent poetry Jon. I enjoyed reading it today. I wish I could keep up with all the poets here but I can't. Thank you for sharing your writing with us. Love, Carol

    You are right. There are so many poets on the soup. I can't keep up either. Lots of poets and little time.

    Jon, another funny one... but with a philosophical taint... Good work!! Terry

    Thank you. William Blake deserves credit for the original. I just embellished it as a parody.

    funny and clever and beautifully rhymed! (fix the typo in the first verse, though - i'm sure you meant "tray" and not "try.)

    Thanks for the heads up. My fingers sometimes move faster than my keys or my head.
