If a Bumblebee Can Fly, Why Can't I?
If a Bumblebee Can Fly, Why Can't I?

If a bumblebee can fly,
I must question why can't I?
Will I find success or die
If I should give it a try?

Pursuing the idyllic dream,
A chance at one clandestine scheme,
I run and with a mighty jump
Launch, through the air, this porcine rump.

For a moment of pure exhiliration
I become one with the avian nation.

But gravity, I find, is no friend of mine
And reality proves that this portly swine
Returns heavily with such a squishy thud
And lands on his dignity, rump in the mud.

Oh, Mr. Bumblebee
Won't you please, please tell me
All the secrets of your success
And stop laughing at my distress?


I am the never ending story with a grand finale.
Francis Meyrick

Cool!  A lighthearted Mickey-taking, poke at... a fat butt trying to fly.
I like it. Maybe I was in a similar rebellious mood, when I penned this strudel:

It's about a Spider and a Fly.

Keep 'em coming. Smile

We little humans, hurtling through the Universe on our tiny, pale blue dot, will find few answers to Life's great mysteries. But we should at least find many of the questions. To write is to ask. To seek. To grope. With humility, and humor. Peace.
