A Fly (Revisted)

Just a fly
the wall
my perch

Watching this small
world go by

Trapped in this
house
it sees
door open
flies as fast
it is so
can

Yet not that
fast
for its wings
have been
bent so
broken

Never quiet
healed
for as it
does
reach it
the door so
slamed shut

Second before
freedom so
could have
reached

Close but yet
far
fly returns
to wall
sitting watching
mostly unnoticed

When it is noticed
they either ignore
it
try to kill
it

No one has tried
to set it
free

There is one
that has tried
to capture it
small little glass
jar

That one once
succeeded
by driving the fly
over the edge
purposley pushing
wrong button

Then being stuck
in a 5 by 5 glass
jar

Escaped it did
moved back
into the larger
prison

Moved back to its place
on the wall

There the fly will
remain untill

Have they no shame
for I am that fly
on the wall

I stay with my
undying eyes
watching this
world fly by
one day

Some person will
let it fly free

Saith I will have to wait
until my wings fully heal

Then I shall fly free
from this prison
