Two-Headed Skippers

Dr Abe V Rotor
Skippers are crepuscular (dusk loving), they
have characteristics of the moth and the butterfly.
Scientists find them unique specimens to study.

Myth or truth - who is telling the story?
There's a Medusa among insects, too.
But where is the head, which is tail?
I am predator, how would I know?
I would rather retreat from the puzzle
and settle for an easier prey;
And let the world go by in fantasy
in make-believe story.
Ask the scientists, ask the old folks
theirs the contrast of the other;
One holds on tools, the other on belief,
to either one, why bother?
Cast doubt, indecision on the powerful,
and the prey wins the game;
Creatures big and small, strong and frail,
Survival is just the same. ~
