A Semaphore from the Butterflies of Mission, Texas

by Dan Campion

“A butterfly conservatory is shutting down due to right-wing harassment”

The chainsaws came to clear a way
For MAGA’s border wall.
Our Center sued, so, sad to say,
Receives threats that appall.
Their right-wing source seems not to care
For our life’s how and why.
Perhaps they’ll learn. We hope we’re there.
It takes two wings to fly.
