The Hungry Caterpillar

The story of the hungry caterpillar is a warning to us all,

An instruction to avoid consumption of that which make us full;

Of slander, lies, and gossiping, untruths that spread like fire,

Of gluttony and over-satisfaction of our sensory desires.

But unlike Mr. Caterpillar, no butterfly shall we become,

Plagued by insecurity, of hatred, an ugly version of a human we will become.
