Fly on the Wall

Just a fly on the wall.
Swat it once, watch it fall.

To you, I’m the definition
Of the word annoyance.
My only reason is to see
Just how annoying I can be.

Just a fly on the wall.
Swat it twice, watch it fall.

But look inside, what do you find?
A boy unlike you thought.
Just one look ? that’s all I ask, and
Erase the façade you bought

Just a fly on the wall.
Swat it thrice, watch it fall.

For although what you see
Is almost all of me,
There is more underneath
Then what you would even care to see

No longer a fly on the wall.
Swat it no more,
I’m through with it all.
