a dead butterfly on the windowsill

A dead butterfly on the windowsill  
the child didn't believe when found it still.  

it was still so pretty though lifeless and stiff  
Many found it right to put it on a stick.  
 
Plastic flowers atop the chest of drawers  
its new permanent home this imitation tower.  
 
a dead butterfly on the windowsill  
A fatal mistake- it followed its will.
