flies

I humbly realize that I am a far cry

From evolved , when I examine — a fly!

He has , out of all proportion to his size,

Three simple and two huge compound eyes!

He can recognize danger in any guise,

Spot from afar any maggoty prize,

Evade my feeble attempts to surprise

Him! If his tiny brain can process

So much data so quick;

Why is my much larger brain

So sluggish and thick?
