Flying Worms

Flying Worms

Flying Worms
by Brod Bagert

It made me quiver, it made me squirm–
that creepy, crawling, hairy worm.
It got even worse, imagine this–
it turned into a chrysalis.

It stayed that way for about a week
and that’s when things got really bleak.
What happened next? I tell no lie,
that creepy worm has learned to fly.

Sweet butterflies? Such lovely things?
They’re just a bunch of worms with wings.
It makes me quiver. It makes me squirm.
The butterfly–A FLYING WORM!
