Wendell the Worm
Wendell the worm was strolling along
When all of the sudden he heard a sweet song
He followed the tune with his miniscule ear
And to his displeasure a bluebird appeared!
He wriggled and struggled and inched away fast
He knew that at this rate he just wouldn't last
That bird could have eaten him up in a flash
But then Wendell heard the world's biggest splash.
The bird seemed to follow him this way and that
So Wendell just hid in and old, littered hat.
The bird once again sung his usual song
But this time he thought that he should sing along
He hummed oh so loudly, in tune with the bird
They sang in such harmony, everyone heard.
Soon an old man put the hat on his head,
Now Wendell knew that he soon would be dead.
But to his surprise, he saw the songbird
And got oh so nervous, he said these all these words:
"Be gone fellow artist! Please let me be free! I BEG singing
Songbird have MERCY on me!"
The worm just waited for the bird to respond but instead
Started singing his usual song.
