Playing With Worms

It's raining, it's pouring
The old man is snoring
Song is driving Mom crazy
I'm gonna to draw her a daisy

Yay, the rain is stopping
I don't want to go shopping
I want to go out and play
I promise to put my crayons away

I'll wear my boots, I won't get wet
Wait, I'm not done colouring yet
The puddles are sure sparkling bright
Daddy, why are clouds grey and white?

Where did all these worms come from?
No, worms are not dirty and not dumb!
Mom! My brother is being really mean
I'll wash them in the puddles, they'll be clean

I love rain, cause the worms come out
Don't ya think I'll make a good girl scout?
Ooh, look at that one, he's so big and fat
Can I keep him as my pet, I don't want a cat

I can name him squirmy, he'll be my friend
Is his face at the front or at the back end?
But he'll miss his friends and be so sad
Plus my sister will get really, really mad

She don't like worms and won't let you in our room
And Mom might sweep you up with her broom
So I'll come and play with you after the rain
That way nobody will ever, ever complain.

    Thanks Arlene. I wrote this from a 5 yr old viewpoint. When I got older all my brothers had to say we're going fishing and off I go to get them worms. So worms are our common ground, lol.

    Love the title. I can't believe that I hadn't read this before. And I love the remembrance of how curious kids are. Thank you for sharing.

    I'm happy you enjoyed! I do not know that song, another friend asked me that too, hmm maybe I didn't want to hear it if it involved eating my friends the worms, ha. ha
