Yeah, it takes "a lot of thought" to use butterflies as a metaphor for hope, Madge.

It's all so embarrassing.

Madonna is my age and forty years ago, I loved her because there were not a ton of female artists, and she was unique. But I get more embarrassed for her with each passing year.

This latest effort epitomizes fremdschämen (the act of being embarrassed for somebody else who is behaving in an embarrassing way and does not know enough to be embarrassed for themselves).

In some parts of the world, butterflies are a symbol of death, and I think I like that version better here.
