Dedicated with humor to J. Allen Wilson...



There is a person named Al,

He is a guy, not a gal,

Butterflies he loves,

They fly right up and set on his gloves,

A little dippy is he, but a hell of a good pal…


Often deranged,

In the emotion department,

He was not shortchanged,

I think in the 60’s, drugs did of his brain rearrange…


As for his butterfly fetish,

I think that Freud said it best,

“If he has for life & this a zest,”

“Nobody else should in any way protest…”

What's wrong with a feller likin them little butterflies;

I hear my brother the Jersey Devil likes house flies!

(At least that's what his devilish old dog Rufuz says.)
