A Piece about a Butterfly which came to me while I was out having a picnic.
Not Rhyming Poetry.

I saw a Butterfly today

mutilating a flower for lavish food.

The elegant, majestic, purple bud,

failing to fighting back at all.

Just suffering, just wilting, just going.


Physically gone; spiritually dead!

Nothing can save this innocent creature;

from a Butterfly’s Bullying rampage.

Yet along comes a bumble bee strong and kind.

No fear of the bullying type. No

hesitation that could be seen; the bee

circled the flower, preparing to help.

Bully fluttered fast, far away.

This flower is nobody’s pray!
