Flea: see Insect & Fly & Animals

esias - W B Yeats - Robert Hook - Jonathan Swift - Robert Lanza - David Attenborough TV -   

 

 

52,369.  I have a flea.

 

He lives in the mat

By my feet.

 

I wonder

If he curses God

And hopes to die

 

Like me,

Or maybe Life is rosy

And complete

By sucking the blood

 

Of my feet.

Regurgitates Shakespeare

For fun, this fiend;

Fires his belly i’ the sun.

 

Live and let live, says the flea.  (Epigram Poems & Flea)  [esias, The Penthouse, 2009]

 

 

60,152.  But was there ever dog that praised his fleas?  (Praise & Dog & Flear)  W B Yeats

 

 

73,077.  The microscope manifests it to be all over adorned with a curious polished sable suit of armour, and beset by multitudes of sharp pins shaped almost like porcupine's quills, or bright conical steel bodkins.  Robert Hook, Micrographia

 

 

73,079.  So, naturalists observe, a flea

Hath smaller fleas that on him rey;

And these have smaller fleas to bite ’em,

And so proceed ad infinitum

Thus every poet, in his kind,

Is bit by him that comes behind.  Jonathan Swift, On Poetry

 

 

73,080.  We are more than the sum of our biochemical functions.  Even the tiniest flea is an incredibly complex living creature, with mouth-parts adapted to feeding on the blood of your cat or dog.  Robert Lanza

 

 

111,650.  Some animals can perform amazing physical feats.  A flea’s jump is said to be the equivalent of a man leaping over St Paul’s cathedral.  And it’s famous quoted that cheetahs can run at speeds of 70 miles per hour.  (Animal & Cat & Flea)  Attenborough’s Natural Curiosities s3e1: Impossible Feats  

 

111,651.  There are more than 2,500 species worldwide.  (Animal & Flea)  ibid.

 

111,652.  They can leap a respected thirty-eight times their bodies.  (Animal & Flea)  ibid.
