My Fair Lady

What is the difference between 
A moth and a butterfly, so minuscule, oh well, oh well 
Check for ID, make sure you check; check, check

I mean they come from the same family 
And spring their feathers wide to show beauty 
Insects that won the hearts of men 

Soft, subtle and majestic in their enchantment 
One can not differentiate simply by beauty 
As so often, this is the miss-judged conception; oh well, oh well 

Butterflies are for the day, to worship t' sun a' be seen on flowers 
And moths, well they turn to like the moonlight 
Fluorescent and neon lights, that lauds the night 

On occasion deviant, well, well; moths do fly by day 
So beautiful and dazzling with such bright colors 
And if beauty was all that, one did go by, oh well, oh well   

You see moths have gained a reputation; oh, oh, oh  
For the unwanted attention they bring like invaders 
But with so few bright spots at night, oh well, oh well 

How can you blame the moth for seeking the only light bright 
Conditions so trivial have turned butterflies into aristocrats  
A' the moths into commoners living in shanty towns, oh well,  oh well

But do not judge by beauty alone, check for ID; oh,oh, oh 
For my fair lady managed to fit in by day to worship the sun 
And won t' heart of  Freddy Eynsford-Hill, well, well

Oh, oh, breaking the heart of Prof. Higgins, oh well, oh well 
Just don't judge by beauty alone, the time of day or seasons too 
It is hard to tell the difference on occasions,these days; well well

When tables of fortune turns 
Oh well, oh well, well, well 
Oh, oh, is that you my fair lady?

  1. An interesting comparison between the two as they say beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

  2. I will never look at the moths hovering around my outside lights in quite the same way again. How lovely.

  3. My fair lady no longer fair, too long too close to heat,
    you wrote an interesting creative essay.

  4. Well thought out, and nicely executed!
