The World According To

The world according to a fly
is the picnic you insisted I
join you on
spread upon
the shores of Getsome Lake.

The world according to a worm
is churn and turn,
turn and squirm
through my eyes
buried in the berm
between the lake and the interstate.

For Kerry's mini-challenge at Real Toads

A picnic seems to be more for the flies sometimes.. :-)

And the body count keeps rising! "Getsome Lake" is classic, and so you.

Getsome Lake and Inter States! Haha. Very cool!

Enigma said...

The different perspectives of the world, eh? We can learn a lot from both the worm and the fly. :)

Love the perspectives here, everything being relative, LOL....love "Getsome Lake". Didnt know there was such a place, no wonder I missed out.

This is great- the rhyming so perfect - clapping.

There is a serious theme behind the apparent whimsy of viewing the world through the eyes of fly and worm - especially when it comes to the sense of coercion in the whole invitation. The second stanza seems to portray a woman pushed to the ground by the fellow determined to "Getsome". Not sure if my reading is correct but this speaks of a dark place.

Flies and worms..such depth it what might appear at first glance as mere whimsy.
