Sweet chaos, butterfly wings and bear paws

Sweet chaos, butterfly wings and bear paws

Dismal truth, perhaps some eldritch clatter

Extramundane whistle without a cause

An agonist finding the world’s flatter

In a brick stove cooking casserole

Cooked with lean meat and veg wrapped with batter

Numerous stuff without our control

A quiet man hardened with experience

One day he’ll get out of jail and parole

As the butterfly flicks its wings and hence

And the bear eats his honey with its paws

Life carries on so let’s not be serious

The boy’s wounded, mum helped him with a gauze

Kissing it better and the boy smiled

After the show there was a great applause

And so in the woods we find their love child

Bravely we asked him what is the matter?

There’s nothing but time to be reconciled

So back to sweet chaos and everything

Wait for what it brings, life is full of zing

Sweet chaos, butterfly wings and bear paws

Extramundane whistle without a cause*
