Butterfly on the Moon. (Nonsense verse inspired by a conversation on the Bangalore Butterfly Club, where Kesava asked how much a butterfly would weigh on the moon!

Thought the butterfly as she flitted over the moon,
"I can't stay here, I'll have to leave soon.
"It is a matter that's sad to state
"But on this place, alas, I have hardly any weight.
"How can I lay eggs or perpetuate my race
"If I can't even land but float off in space?
"Alas!" she added, " I may be over the moon
"But it's the worth of the Earth that is my greatest boon."
