Of all species of butterfly,
Of all the types who flutter by:
Lycaeridae, there’s more, I say…
Monarch, peacock, swallowtail,
Painted Lady, Painted Male …
Their colors rival rainbow hues
With reds, greens, oranges, and blues.
And yet these Lepidoptera
(in colors quite show stop-tera)
Are color-blind. They only see
Red, yellow, green. (Those colors three.)
Which means our insect stud won’t notice
Femmes all tarted like a lotus.
He’d never know if future mate
Had changed wing-color for their date
Or if some Lepidoptera
Wore colors quite show stop-tera.
But when approaching traffic lights
On sunny morns or murky nights
A butterfly would always know
To slow, to stop, and then to go.
Bracelet and earrings right here.
