"The Fly" by Melissa marie canaway

It's about a fly who, after his bravado nearly gets him into serious trouble, learns that sometimes you have to run away if you wish to live to see tomorrow...

A fly doth sit upon the wall

Looking over a horse and stall;

And to himself, he slyly thinks;

“I'll get him when he stops to drink.

That horse down there shall feel my bite

Before this day fades into night.

And, though my fellows gone ahead

Have felt his stinging tail, and fled,

I shall be safe, oh, yes sirree,

No horse's tail could get near me!”

But bravado soon fled away

And he was later heard to say,

'While bravery is well and good

it simply must be understood

though winning is a cherished thing

you might still lose, so cautious be

If you then wish to try again

why; you'll still be alive, my friend.

But if you try, and fail to run

Then, I'm afraid, friend, that you're done.
