Acrostics Only: Acrostic Haiku - FLY

Feeling bit lowly
Life has gone south and sour
You bit me, now fly

Acrostics Only: Prompt B: Acrostic Haiku (AH) - FLY
(A Haiku is a Japanese lyric verse form having 3 un-rhymed lines of 5, 7, 5 syllables, traditionally invoking an aspect of nature or the seasons.)
(Similarly constructed poems involving human nature, are generally excluded from haiku, and reserved specifically for Senryū.)
Note: Grasshoppers never eat other insects. They are called herbivores because they eat only plants (link). But a hungry fly will take a bite of most anything living or having once lived. I.e. now dead or alive. For more about grasshoppers read here.
