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.
