She decorated the butterfly net
Like one would expect her to:
Pink ribbons tied on the handle.
They fluttered in the gentle breeze
As she reached out a tiny hand,
And scooped up the small snake.
The science teacher said, “That is a great specimen”
The English teacher said, “Though she be but tiny, she is fierce”
She donned her graduation gown
Like the other girls did, too,
Over her dress and high heels.
And those who remember the pink ribbons
Smile, and watch to see what happens next.
