The Will of a Common Housefly

The Will of a Common Housefly

 

I of sound wing and happy hops

do declare that I am of sound wing and happy hops.

From person, to creature, to pile of poo,

I am happy to share with you.

Not a drop of hatred do I bear,

though the need to be with you is there.

 

I of sound wing and happy hops

do declare that I am of sound wing and happy hops.

A light, oh my, I do declare

a most definite signal of human air.

How I love to buzz around,

and drive you to a favorite game.

 

Tangle in the hair,

take a jaunt along your feet, what a pair.

A momentary hug has arose

as I land upon your pert nose.

 

Swat at me

Bat at me.

Beat me to a pulp.

I will never die,

and that is not a lie!

 

My young will come for you,

And drive you totally nuts.

In much the same way

as I made you bay.

Howl.

Cry “Tarnation!”

Oh, how I love that declaration!

 

I of sound wing and happy hops

do declare that I am of sound wing and happy hops.

Oh… but I love you,

as only special friends do.

Oh, how I dare to

continue to fly ‘round you.
