Oh Butterfly who drowned in my coffee cup
How life was cut too short
Like an eraser to a dutiful nerd's paper
Did the scorching seas of caffeine
Rain pain on your wings?
Oh but life is like a precious rose
So delicate and short lived
Oh Butterfly who drowned in my coffee cup
You died so suddenly
Your death did stun me.

This was a writing assignment in my creative writing club. We were asked to use 5 words (butterfly,coffee cup,eraser,rose,and rain) in a poem,short story,or skit. Well I decided to write a humorous ode to a dead butterfly. Poem form.
