“SHOUT FROM A MOUNTAIN SCREAM REALLY LOUD FOR BULLYING CAN NEVER, EVER BE ALLOWED!”

Rosie flicked in the night with a leap and grin.

She was excited to dive right in.

She dreamed of what the night could bring –

The moon, stars, and everything.

 

Until she loop de looped by Drake –

Who was barely still awake.

What’s wrong with you Drake replied.

You look quite silly flying by.

 

How dare you wear this ugly dress

Just white, drab, and a mess.

Look at my colors vibrant and bright

So much better than boring white.

Your dreariness, plainness makes us snore.

Dixie laughed until she could laugh no more.

Who would want to be your friend?

You’re boring – don’t you comprehend?

 

What type of butterfly are you anyway?

Who flies by night and not by day?

We want to sleep so please move along.

You are ugly, bugly and don’t belong.

With sadness, Rosie lost her voice.

None of this had been by choice.

She wanted to say she’s not a butterfly,

But a moth who was flying right on by.

 

Why did they need to be so cruel?

What happened to the golden rule?

If they had only let her speak.

They could see how moths are unique.

For moths are great at pollinating flowers.

They can mimic you for several hours.

Their smell can reach a seven-mile range.

They let you know when there’s a climate change.

But now she didn’t know what else to do.

She never thought white would make her feel blue.

She could feel the tear running down her face

For she did not want to be in this place.

 

It was obvious the butterflies didn’t want her around.

She wished she could be invisible and not make a sound,

But a little voice told her she should not give in

For bullying is not how anyone ever wins.
