(aak) The Men And The Drosophilas - Poem by Edwin Alba Empestan

There lies numerous drosophilas
Like real life different kinds exist
Ebony, white eyed, black tail, red eyed etc.
Life too can be black, white, yellow and brown

But all of the same kind drosophilas are nothing
But humans are endowed with minds not the 'fruit flies'
We love, and hate but drosophilas only feed on rotten fruits
We live and let live, but also live and let die

The choice! yes the choice is important
Not the rotten fruits that let drosophilas thrive
But the choice can be rotten and be dangerous
So have choice and not be rotten like the fruits drosophilas feed
