Fly ArmyRiddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
We all came from the best of the army,
Marching camouflaged or in fatigue only;
Our field training was long, hard, and steady,
Bivouacs on the ground, sometimes on our belly.
We survived the course with great difficulty,
Our bodies ached and changed completely;
When we all got our wings eventually,
The blue sky is ours, to fly we are ready.
We now display our colors for all to see,
Purple though is for the emperor mostly;
Red or white for the admirals of the navy,
And orange and black for the viceroy of the country.
What are we?
Army of caterpillars. Caterpillars are green and some use camouflage for protection. Complete metamorphosis. Colorful wings. Emperor, Red or White Admirals, and Viceroy are kinds of butterflies.
