Who Flies The Kite?

Who Flies The Kite?

‘I,’ said the boy; ‘it is my joy,

I fly the kite.’

Who flies the kite?

‘I,’ said the wind; ‘it is my whim,

I fly the kite.’

Who flies the kite?

‘I,’ said the string; ‘I am the thing

that flies the kite.’

Who flies the kite?

‘I,’ said the tail; ‘I make it sail,

I fly the kite.’

Who flies the kite?

All are wrong, all are right,

All fly the kite.

The string, the tail and the wind work together with the boy to keep the kite floating and flying. If any one of these factors are missing or even not functioning fully well the kite does not fly; nevertheless any single one of them can not claim to oneself all the credit for flying the kite. It is the systematic cooperation of all that keeps the kite flying. So too in any organization no one individual can claim to himself all the credit.
