I know your secret butterfly
No more the pure sweet innocent
No more your fragile wings or colours
Will fool my wisened eye

Vanity you think you hide
Rises to the surface
Flutter there, you grace our midst
And gain too, from the compliments
We pay you, I have seen through
Your careless love of human company
You pose for me
Expecting exclamations of your beauty
Oh, vain creature, in disguise
I know you now
Oh vain creature of the skies
I know you now

The answer to EVERYTHING!!!:- The Cycle.
Spread the word man!

I liked this...the observation it holds, and the analyzing of the character. great choice on use of "wisened". :) Namaste~

hmm, sounds familiar
I know a butterfly or two flitting around these parts. I like the slightly-alterred repetition at the end.

You've captured the essence of vanity and the ego as a butterfly beautifally. Love the variation and rhmying elements. Mystic, yet worldly!
