The Butterfly

Now listen very closely. It's almost like an art,
And answer me truthfully. Did you ever hear a butterfly fart?

I mean it has to happen, they eat fruit and nuts all day,
And when it happens to butterflys, does it help them fly away?

Is it like a little gas engine, that makes a putt, putt, putt?,
And does it stop abruptly, when he closes his butthole shut?.

Now I know that these are'nt questions you'd hear from a sane mans lips.
Does the butterfly eat extra, when he's planning longer trips?

Now when you're out enjoying a beautiful sunny day.
When you see a butterfly flying by, you won't see it in quite the same way.

    OH, my, your line about a butthole made me laugh out loud. Such a great play on words with butterfly, hahaha. From what little I have seen of you, I think your forte is in funny poem writing, Thomas. And about etheree, I find them very easy to do. I even have a chapbook called "For the Love of Etheree!" Glad you liked mine. Luv, andrea

    LOL Thomas... You do have an inquisitive mind! The answer is, NO!" And when I see a butterfly flying by, I'll probably be thinking of you, Thomas Plue.
