Fang the man-eating butterfly

A story of grief, and great terror in the sky.
Is the story of Fang, the man eating butterfly.
First he ate my sister, and that was okay.
My sister had a habit, of arguing all day.

But then he ate mum and that made me mad,
He at a hill-billy, a police-man, and a weird dude called Brad.

I approached Fang, with caution and fear,
I would have stayed home, had I drank one less beer.
His huge bright wings were frightening shades of black and of red,
His butterfly legs looked like talons and he had horns on his head.

I yelled at him: “Hey Fang, why are you so dang mean,
Everyone is scared of you, and your table manners are obscene.
Fang, you ate people we care about, and that made us grieve,
Why did you eat those 5 people, in 5 man-sized meals.”

Fang suddenly cried and said: “I’m so sorry about that
I guess I over-reacted when they implied I was fat,
All I wanted in life, was for people to love me,
But when I eat too much food, they all called me chubby”.

I started to giggle under my breath, just a little at first,
When I noticed the height of Fang’s body, was less than his girth.
I do not know the moral of this butterfly tragedy.
The next person Fang ate, was poor tipsy me.

About this Poem...

Animal: Alpaca
Description/motivation: Wrote "Fang the man-eating butterfly" on a plane from Florida back towards San Francisco with help of my family. Finished it before the plane left the ground. :)

This is my first silly poem I put on my wiki.

This is one in a serious of poems I've written about various animals. The motivation, is that I love the idea of spirit animals, and I decided, one day, to ask many of my friend what animal they think best represents their personality. In some cases the poems are written with the person in mind... and sometimes it's purely about the animal. Read more about my process here. If you love this poem or want another written please e-mail me at :-)
This is an original poem by me!
