Poem - Caterpillar

Updated on April 28, 2012

I have been a caterpillar for a number of years

and now once again

metamorphosise to butterfly

though the chill wind of rejection will kill

I flutter hither and thither

in search of warmth

just the simple act of interest alone

no mandatory means test

no fashion interrogation

no background check

just a little chemical exchange

the virus of ideas inserting itself

into our future

      the virus of ideas inserting itself into our future
