The Spelling Bee that Wasn't

The morning of the spelling bee I simply did not feel like me The teacher said, to my surprise “I think you must have butterflies” So naturally I saw the nurse Who looked inside and said “it’s worse” I had to see a doctor soon Inside of me was a cocoon! The doctor came and peeked inside A worried look he could not hide “This is not good,” said Dr. Hiller “The cocoon is now a Caterpillar!” “But not to worry”, he did say “Soon enough he’ll fly away” “Does that make you feel better?” No it doesn’t. And that is the spelling bee that wasn’t.
