The Worm

To prove my love to Laura Woods,

she made me eat a worm.

She pulled a fat one from the dirt —

you should have seen it squirm!

“If you love me,” Laura said,

“you’ll eat it, I’m quite sure.”

She brushed a little dirt from it —

the next part is a blur!

I took that worm from Laura Woods

and opened my mouth wide

and then remember nothing more,

no matter how I’ve tried.

Laura said I ate the worm

to prove my love was true,

but why I ever loved that girl —

now I have no clue!
