For the Blue Morpho
one side is iridescent blue
the other is brown
almost like a moth
Some might say that the brown side
or maybe just drab
the fact that the morpho
cannot see it's shining brilliance
suggests not deceit
Or maybe he's just fine
with the side he keeps to himself
and offended by others being so
captivated by him
only when he turns to leave.
| okay you used butterfly in the title....but so what...this is really different..the two sides, drab and brilliant...but the drab side might just be hiding brilliance....sometimes we really misjudge by what is on the outside..|
there could be brilliance on the inside...something really worth getting that net and chasing into the sunset.

Only mistake I saw was misspelling 'deceit' in line 10.
Peace, love and all that other junk,

It's freaky things like the Morpho that creationists press forward to advance their agenda. I'm not sure what exactly their agenda is, but it's obviously important to them, like poetry is important to the poet, and is as much an agenda of sorts.|
