A caterpillar discharged
from her cocoon,
becomes a butterfly

A caterpillar discharged
from her cocoon,
becomes a butterfly
full in bloom.

She spreads her wings
like petals in the sun,
showing off her new found
beauty to all.

Her caterpillar friends
are jealous indeed,
wishing that they to
had beautiful wings.

She tells them all
but you'll get your wings,
as soon as you eat
some more weeds.

If you want to have
beautiful wings just like me,
you better start eating
those flowers at your feet.
