Aleksander the Terrible

All morning, he captures butterflies and moths In his net and attempts to feed them with picked flowers. At least six cabbage moths will no longer be eating my broccoli.
The butterfly, a cabbage-white,
(His honest idiocy of flight)
Will never now, it is too late,
Master the art of flying straight.
~Robert Graves, "Flying Crooked"
