The Elusive Butterfly - Poem by Gary G Willmore

Ethical, Integrity, Accountability, Compassion, Sorrow
Words in your demented world which are foreign to your soul
Alas the terrors of being committed to one as you flying so high
All drawn from the heavens or hell with words that you speak in grace
In sickness or heath, till death does part, are all for treasure-troves you may enjoy
Your mind so complex, death by hate with no aspirations for love of god
You build hope then bring fresh terror with fears to heap upon all mankind
Elusive butterfly drawn to sugar only to dance at the devils fire by nightlight
Through laborious years you glide so high only to attack these bases of life
With well-weighted advantage you strike to destroy the foundation of faith we imply
What joy do you bring to this earthy world as flying your true colors will corrupt new life?
Elusive butterfly the down of your life ends as winter is coming mankind will survive
Your sleep for eternity only to find fresh victims and strike as the new winds arise
Elusive butterfly.
