The only things that never change
Are comfort food, drink and the pupal stage.
As you prepare to meet the new
Here's a guide for what to do:
Change can be managed by attrition,
Says the paper's short edition,
Or enjoyed by those upon the ocean
As long as there's not too much motion.
It's healthy now and then to shed,
Or molt or shave or give up bread.
Epiphany came to the walrus,
The Manson clan and Saul of Tarsus,
But real change comes without warning,
When we wake up every morning.
CHRYSALIS, n. The static stage in the life cycle of a butterfly, symbolizing change.
