Maybe dung beatles would have been more fitting since flies generally just get on everything and sucking up food bits. Flies after all must suck up then vomit and suck it up again in order to feed since they have no biting or chewing mouth parts in many species. The common house fly. There are biting and blood sucking ones as well. Rabbits must re-eat their own feces in order to get the full nutritional value because of their inefficient digestive system. I am sorry but I did not find it humorous. Not bad per se, just not funny. I would tell the artist to work on it, do research and try again. I want one that is insightful and funny.

My apologies, perhaps, to Gerard Manley Hopkins.

Have we now the inspiration for “God’s Manure” and “Flied Beauty”?

Or, less blasphemously (perhaps), a rereading of “Repeat that, repeat” and “Carrion Comfort”?

However, we, flies were already there, and we loved God for his genius!
