I once knew a fisherman named Herm
On the use of bait, he stood firm
Give me some corn he said
Or a piece of old bread
Because I just couldn't hurt a poor worm.
Silly Willy with a worm
Had a pocket that would squirm
A Silly Willy was this boy
His pocket worm brought him joy
Don't mistake him for a toy
He is handsome and so coy
Silly Willy's naughty worm
Growing bigger makes girls squirm~
Oh there once was a bird in the sky
Till he said " I am Hungry Oh MY!"
He hopped on the ground
Till a fat worm was found
Then he swallowed it up with a sigh.
There is one in the garden soon fed
He is always the first from his bed
Haven’t you heard ?
It’s the early bird
Catches the worm - Blackbird Fred
My apple contained half a worm
This really made my tummy churn
I’d devoured one half
It sure made me barf
In future an apple I’ll spurn
I once saw a fish on a hook,
traveling up and down a brook
with a tasty worm inside
wiggling once then died
looking back with, a dirty look
I was fishing for trout
when a turtle came about,
He grabbed the worm from the hook,
Ddnt even take a second look.
I cussed at him you fool id shout.
Salmon and Big Storm
Saw trout wiggle and squirm
Looking for a wobbly worm
Going upstream eggs to lay
Always knew which way
Better watch out for a big storm.
"I can't wriggle out of this bed"
A worm's rear complained to its head
A bluebird dropped by
Took worm for a fly
Happiness is nestlings well fed
Only four more months then spring will return
Pshaw! No problem, got patience to burn
A minor detail
Damn frigid stuff makes me squirm like a worm
There once was a light-skinned pachyderm
Who had a thing for a lowly worm
Sun-bathing on the hot sand
Elephant got quite a tan
Poor worm earned him a wiggly sunburn
FISHERMAN & Worm Gon Fishin
A Fisherman comes
Reached on the ground
Picks up Itchy-Bitzy worm
That's texting on his phone
Open mouth Catfish sayin yummy
Go on Fisherman drop him

Tho! there's the apple blue
Thine favorite color hue
There's a worm in it
Eating of it makes you sick
Royalty is true, but this apple was not for youGod's got something
A better a big ole cold watermelon

There once was vampire named Vlad.
His life was obscurely sad.
He ate a worm,
The tide did turn.
Now Vlad is famously bad.
The early bird catches the worm
It's welcome to it in no uncertain terms
This is not a treat
It's really gross to eat
Even with ice cream as the stomach turns
Tongue Was Talking
Tongue was talking about a consulting firm,
Seeming to be sick spreading like a germ
How hard did try,
But overcome by;
Lies he told made him worm and squirm.
There once was a young man from the ground.
He said, "See the lovely horehound!"
It was rather much,
But not very clutch,
He couldn't say no to the homebound.
What's transparent and smells like a worm?
Obviously, it's a bird fart that lasts long term
That was a tough one
Cat got your tongue?
Life gets tedious and we act with much concern
Some Worm Who Would Wiggle
Remember when there was a worm,
Who would wiggle when it did squirm;
On path appeared,
As twilight neared;
Afraid and onto branch he held firm.
For Poetry Revisited's picture of a path.
