Ideal Life - Poem by Matthias Pantaleon

A fellow who must lead
a just and fair life
Should learn to live like butterflies

They don't get caught up with dragon flies
Nor stuck up in wild flower yard
Sensibly tasting and offering
what they could afford

No grudges
Living a life of ease
like the world is within the flaps
of their wings
