Caterpillar Politics

The caterpillar bros munched;

A jar of Study Buddies,

Each one now named,

Reminders of our love of Life,

Beauty worth sharing,

Single minded philosophers,

Marching to transformation…

I asked their politics,

They chewed noisily,

Making anise vanish,

They had no interest,

Nor party affiliation,

They are food voters,

Interested in one pursuit,

No lies or corruption,

Walking a simple path,

As eggs hatch and struggle,

Seeking real food,

Dodging hungry birds,

Camouflaged and persistent,

Rising to secret places,

Resting and realizing,

Perfection in flight,

A family seeking tomorrow.

The caterpillars emerged today!
