Butterfly Spit

Oh my God, what’s that?
That! That that just spat!
Oh, the dread
it’s on my leg.
Holy s**t
it’s butterfly spit.
Who’d have caught
the dark thought
that beautiful bugs
could be brutish thugs.
Their time in cocoons
has made them loons,
all that flutter
has turned them nutters.
There’s another stereotype
I’ll kiss goodnight.
