That fat pup
was looking like it was ready to J.
Find it’s spot and
start the transformation.
Johnny felt a tinge of satisfaction.
A tiny inkling that
the tables were turning.
Milkweed is toxic to the eyes,
punishing those who turn blind eye
to the evils of the likes of Monsanto.
If he had his way,
every executive in the chemical giant
would be tied to a tree
and have their corneas painted with
the plant’s burning sap.
Evolution punishes bad decisions.
And sometimes bad luck intervenes and does the deciding.
There will be no next generation after this failed experiment.
Johnny was disappointed, but took it in stride.
Knowing it’s a numbers game.
That impulse to scale the concrete wall sealed the jewel’s fate.
Not everyone deserves to become resurrected a butterfly.
