Does a fly feel joy in life?

    or despair? or are the absence of both equal to 'contentment' and a higher or more worthwhile state than either.

  2. Is any one fly better than any other? How can a fly do right or wrong?

    They're only there to bring us guilt on their little wings, maybe.

    So small an enemy, it's shameful to fight them.

    Would a great saint throw himself under a carriage in order to rescue a fly? Francis of Assisi, maybe. I wonder if he called them Brother Fly and Sister Midge.

    And if they gathered all round him.
