Different strokes


Hate the caterpillar
Adore the butterfly
Ask not for reasons
Appearance only matters

Ignore the girl child
impress her in teens
ask not the reasons
appearance only matters

perish the honeybees
relish the honey
ask not the reasons
necessity only matters

rob the nature
sobs for the future
ask not the reasons
greed only matters

nature is awesome
awful is human nature
rubbed on the wrong side
nature will seal our future

To fight for their country and Kaiser;
