only seek to please,"
Sang the butterfly
As it flitted from flower to flower
The little flies did not care
They were enthralled by
the stop sign standing there
Exercising baronial power
"Such authority is beyond compare
To stand so still and tall and red
And tell all when to desist," they said,
"Of course it's all the rage
To be so obstinate and proud!
We worship you, we insist!"
they cried, then dropped down dead
