He couldn't find the dirt
The lowly worm looked all around
He couldn’t find the dirt
That sidewalk was no fun at all
In fact, the pavement hurt

The lowly worm crawled on and on
His belly was real sore
It seemed like he’d been there all day
He couldn’t take much more

The lowly worm knew he was lost
He hung his head and cried
He should have stayed close by his hole
He should have stayed inside

The lowly worm was at wit’s end
He knew he could not last
When suddenly he heard footsteps
Someone approaching fast

The lowly worm was picked up then
He thought he’d be okay
He started to rejoice at once
He thought, “Hip-hip-hooray!

The lowly worm heard someone speak
“I have a good one here”
They placed him in a dirty can
With other worms in there

The lowly worm was now concerned
This wasn’t going well
How could he find his home again
While locked up in this cell?

The lowly worm thought he was saved
When someone plucked him out
... but then they stuck him on a hook
And fed him to a trout

The moral of this story is
When you are feeling low
There always is a chance that there’s
A worse place you can go
