And the worms
Still slither and squirm
In the mud
That has become
And has possibly always been
their security….

The world above,
Where they;d need to employ
Legs.
Real legs
Is a world they know
They’ll trip and fall

Because there aint no
Slithering
Slimey
Grime covered tactic
That can survive
Without the filthy
Pliant
Dirt
To make their path feel safe

(yep, I’ll admit it,
I don’t like the fuckers)
