The Purpleness Of Ladybugs

Purple Ladybugs, they said
Found only in Hawaii
Perfect for those of us, I thought
Looking for stimuli.
When all the world seems
Flattened and hard, and
Facebook posts seem dreary,
Purple ladybugs pop up:
Soul food for the weary.

Details, I thought, and pictures
To show that there is hope
And joy and miracles of nature:
And then I looked at Snope.
Apparently its all a hoax
-Move along, nothing to see here, folks!-
And I do move on, faith renewed,
In pursuit of illusion, Purple-Ladybug-imbued.
