I guess the most effective-
Of writers, great are small.
Is the one who is objective..
Like a “fly upon the wall”.

Seeing, ever seeing;
To him one pays no mind.
And thusly, all unnoticed-
Remaining unentwined.

Untouched by human folly-
He’s free to state his mind.
Untainted by their gossip,
The truth he’s free to find.

Disinterest, is his cup of tea
Emotions play no part.
Thus he remains aloof from-
Affairs that tear the heart.

Poor fly, from lonely, arid perch
It’s true you see it all.
The fickle crowd, and fleeting fame
And how the mighty fall.

Ah, look and see, and then describe
On words your life depends...
Poor fly! Most knowing of us all..
You’re outside looking in.

You may have something there. Am getting tried of what these flies are bring in. You know flies do like the smelly stuff. I don't know I am looking at my writer's market. Maybe they don't allow little flies there? I've read some of your other stuff I do like it better. You spent alot more time on some of them. Us big horse flies are quick.
