"Ecdysis" as written by and Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn Kyle Vernon Hanson....
Yellow black and nice and fat
My body did form a J
Upside down split from the ground
Insides out and gyrate

Harden into chrysalis I begin to pupate
Hormones will cause all my tissues to rearrange

Now green and gold is getting old
It's been nine to fifteen days
Prepare to know my imago
I'm getting out of this case

I will fill my wings with all the fluid I have saved
Becoming structured as this liquid pumps into the veins
I'm getting out
I'm getting out

    General CommentPretty sure it's about the caterpillar stage of the monarch butterfly becoming a butterfly. The caterpillars are yellow and black and they hang upside down and form a J and then form the chrysalis that's mostly green but it looks like it has some golden color in it too. And imago is the final, usually winged, stage of an insect. The butterfly stage.
