dead flies scatter
the windowsill, their
bodies shrivelled and
dried by the sun

i mourn the spider,
hung with his own web
i bet he felt so fuckin useless

This has a "haiku" like, (or Japanese) sense of philosophy to it. A very direct way of expressing meaning.

i never did understand why dead flies always collect on the windowsill instead of places that made more sense, like spiderwebs that were actually made for catching them, or even a floor where they might drop dead when their time comes

because they only times i've ever seen a dead fly is either after my mother sprays it with lethal spray or on its back on the windowsill

That's because they try to get out and they die trying.

I have no idea but dying flies go madder than suicidal moths. They crash into my computer and face screaming, "Kill me now!"

(Not really but you know)

Well I won't deny I've felt like that after losing my job. But this guy was self employed...he should have been okay.
