On the Fly

If I were a fly on the wall

I'd be privy to secrets

I'd know it all.

I'd know the

Who and the What

The When and the Why

I'd have all the intel

I'd make a great spy!

Word would be out

This fly is so smart

I'd just wait for the bidding to start

Wait for the call

Highest bidder takes all!

All that info could prove a tad heavy

I'd be so full of myself,

Oblivious to the ominous can on the shelf

And so, before the bidding takes place

I may not notice it pointing straight at my face

Alas, I'd realize too late

A fly cannot be a spy

Nor a spy be a fly

One squirt, and that's that

The realization would hit me

And, so would the SPLAT!
