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!
