dying fly by smutek

An audio piece depicting the short, unhappy life (and death) of a fly.

A fly is born into the world. It's life is repetitive, monotonous, annoying, and boring.
It bounces from place to place, just landing on stuff.
Take off. Land. Take off. Land.

It wonders, unhappily, what is the purpose of this?

It evades fly swatters, cats, spiders, fly traps and all threats easily as it grows fat, bloated, miserable and old.
It wonders, why do I even bother.

Then suddenly it dawns on the fly - WAIT - I CAN FLY! I CAN FLYYYY!!

And in that instant, it dies.
