The Fart (To a Very Unfortunate Reader)

I farted in gym class outside.
That's why I moved away from you,
And I let the gas disperse
Into the air...
And it floated and floated,
Across valleys and mountains,
Diffusing itself into the air,
Until one tiny molecule of methane,
Reached that fly
On that flower,
And the fly sneezed.
If I fart in the forest,
And there's no-one around
To hear or smell it,
Does it make a sound, or smell?

The author's comments:
I got bored in gym class, and this poem was the result of my fantasies later when I got home. I know the picture that goes along with it might not seem to correspond with the image, but farts underwater make bubbles, right? Also, the bubbles look like they are traveling, much like the fart in this poem! Enjoy!
