Aesopian

A spider had spun its web in the angle between the wall and the overhang of the pitched roof- and this was exactly where a cloud of midges had decided to have their dance.

They went on dancing at the edge of the web even though half their company was already strung up on its wires.

This was something I actually observed- but I think it is also an allegory or a fable or something of that kind.
