A silky white one
Soft wings aglow
Blue with yellow spots
Dancing on its little feet

Brown with faux eyes
With its long tongue
Purple with misty speckles
Fluttering above

They descended on the body
Sucking from the corpse
Long innocent tongues
Greedily lapping up blood

They one by one fluttered away
Each gained their fill
Those glazed dead eyes
Watching them leave
