ah, ego

young, slender, wide-eyed fly

overwhelmed by urges

inflates his ego

pumps air to balloon his head

swelling and lengthening

tiny tubes which support his eyes

pumps and pumps

until his head is massive, translucent

and eyes are as far apart

as his life is worth

to impress a mate

thus puffed up, the stalk-eyed fly


to confront another male

meeting head to head

to measure masculinity

by the width-span of their eyes

hot air results worthy of any politician

for the same prize:

the right to screw

his constituency.
