How to Eat a Can of Worms


A tree house high within the leaves

A crowd of friends to cheer you on

While sun shines high within the sky

And birds nearby, do sing their song

The buzzing laughter of the bees

Is noise, as silence fills the room

While friends, they stare and wait their turn

Watch a face that smiles now turn to gloom

And then the fork, it so descends

Unto the waiting open lair

To take them out and place on tongue

Because, just one had dared to dare

    This poem was so cleverly written, just loved the fun of it. For myself, I think I would perfer sauted in butter with a little garlic. Mmmm!

    An aftertaste of humble pie? This is humorous and entertaining. I liked, "the buzzing laughter of the Bees." Well done. - Phil A
