A Fly in My Eye

What’s that I hear.

It sounds like a fly.

Whatever it is—

It’s now in my eye!

Hop. Hop.

It’s a grasshopper, I think.

Plop. Splash. What’s this?

Now he’s in my drink!

Whoa! Look out!

A bumblebee’s flying near.

Huzz, buzz. What’s that?

I think he’s in my ear!

Is the fly in your eye,

Making it hard to blink?

Is there a bee in your ear,

And a hopper in your drink?

These things don’t belong.

Don’t you see?

That they shouldn’t be there,

Is obvious to me.

Do pigs belong in the sky?

Should a cow live in your den?

Does spinach belong in a pie?

Should a Christian’s life have sin?

Sin will never ever belong,

So do what right—not what’s wrong.


Someone who is righteous lives the way God wants them to live. They live in a right way doing right things in a right relationship with God. But we all make mistakes. Sometimes they are accidents, but sometimes we do wrong things on purpose. If you do something wrong, listen to what the Bible says in 1 John 1:9 about what you should do, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous to forgive us the sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
