By John Ross Harvey

You may not have heard of Crane-flies
But they look like giant mosquitoes
That eat grass and annoy you in your yard
So I saw one stuck in a web
On my back fence
Flying in circles in an exercise in futility
Except that it got out of the web
The stupid fly beat the spider by escaping
So it flies to another part of the fence
A robin flies in and watches
So the fly makes for flight again
And is eaten by the Robin
Sometimes it doesn’t pay to win
At least not in nature
