It Started Out Like Any Other Day

It started out

With the same theme

Like any other day

Old routine

Long time

Stuck in the sack

They’re having fun

I’m out of whack

While cocooned

Had strange dreams

Chewing leaves

Anything green

I was running away

From a bird on my case

Dived into undergrowth

To get it out of my face

Ate my way through

The neighbours hedge

Flower patch

Gouged on veg

Addicted to grass

Tried to ease

Desperate craving

For garden peas

Exhausted then

Fell asleep

Hairy legs

Belly deep

The neighbourhood cried

Here comes trouble

I yawned and stretched

And burst from the bubble

It started out

With the same theme

Like any other day

Old routine

But life became

A permanent high

When I emerged

A butterfly.
