Pete a polite gentleman from Marsden
Everyday he works out in his garden
While digging something did squirm
Found he'd disturbed an earth worm
Pete said "Sorry I do beg your pardon."
The worm replied "Hello and good day"
Then fast wiggled and went on its way
Mouth open and in shock
Pete sat on a near rock
Staring down at the ground in dismay.
Written by Emilia James
When Pete had regained his composure
He ran in to his wife and told her
She said “earthworms can’t talk”
“You’re having a brain storm”
“ Anymore nonsense and we’re over.”
Pete knew that his wife didn't believe him
That she thought he was only dreaming
He told her it was true
Asked her what would she do
She said "I'll pack a bag I'm leaving."
Written by Belle Bellevue
Now the Earthworm had the final say.
He said "Let her do what she may."
So the old hag packed her bag,
she was always such a drag
and Earthy Wormy moved in the next day.
Written by Richard Lamoureux
The earth worm thought Pete's house was huge!
He only wanted to seek better refuge.
So he asked Pete, "Any chance
I can camp in that plant?
Well, at its base. Would you really refuse!"
"Of course!" Pete answered with a grin.
"Now to a secret, I must let you in...
There are some here too
Who would love to eat you
So I urge you to try to blend in!"
"But how, may I ask, is this so?
By the pace that I move they will know
That I'm not one of them.
I will hide in my den.
When they find me, I'll put on a show!"
