WANTED: KARNER KIDS

By Karina Franke

 

Become a Karner Kid!

Please come join our bid

To fill the New York skies

With Karner Blue butterflies.

 

The question is what can you  do

For the endangered Karner Blue?

Lend a hand and get in the game!

Grab a pen and sign your name!

Make lawmakers hear our cry

To give New York a State Butterfly.

 

The Karner is the perfect choice!

If this butterfly had a voice,

It would tell a very  sad story,

Filled with amazing past glory -

A time when clouds of Karner butterflies

Swarmed New York’s pine barren skies.

 

Today, Karner Blue numbers are way  low.

Let’s bring back their beautiful blue glow!

You’ve heard the what, the how, and the why

KARNER BLUE FOR STATE BUTTERFLY!
