"There's not much doubt in any of our minds that no complete idea springs fully formed from our brow,
needing only a handshake and a signature on the contract to send it off into the world to make twenty-five billion dollars.
The germ of the idea grows slowly..." - Walt Kelly

With help from the below, by Adam de Boer

And can you hear the cheers go up?
A soft swell at first, 
perhaps a moment or two
for those in the back
to realize what has begun. 
But then...
Oh, but then...
A tempest does rage,

and for centuries, even millenia.

A lazy caterpillar to the top of the branch,
a stunning butterfly back down
to the masses,
and all televised! What luck!
The bird sounds mean nothing.
The pointy hats?
Even less.
But who's to judge?

Playing on my iTunes at this very moment:
