Flying from across the bluish skies
In clouds as white as the ocean beds
Shooting from side to side, in parallel lines
In sparkly wings; it danced across with pride
For a Jolly social-butterfly it was!

From the hill-tops to the river banks
It hovered round nature’s earthly creations
The sun poured out some golden rays on its wings
The ecstatic winds sang aloud of its splendour
For a famous social-butterfly it was!

Reverenced by the acacia and the betula nigra
Who offered their juicy nectars for no price
The flighty-fluffy butterfly found its way round hearts
But for the joys of freedom, it had failed to be wise
Oh! The naïve butterfly was foolish too!

Once the jolly social-butterfly took to the air
Showing off its colours for some silly applauds
Flip– went its sparkly wings; flap–on a retiring bird
And nothing was left of it but its falling colours
For the frail silly-butterfly was a haughty one indeed!

  1. Wow! Wonderfully rendered! Pride they say, goes be a downfall. Many have fallen from grace to gutter due to this thing called Pride. There are beautiful ladies out there without nothing to show for their beauty, coz of pride! How abt young men? Theirs is even coupled with Ego, and when this pride drives one on, it never stops until is leads to a deadly end, just like the #SocialButterfly…kudos, once again Nonye…doing a wonderful job out here #MyLady…

  2. Flight is the height
    As fluffy the price
    Of magnificent things
    Gravely self-indulging….

    A priceless WORD to the hollow show-off. Yes we can isn’t Yes we should!
    Keep nourishing Eden’s Stream. I’m sated.
