Worm by Kai Eckhardt c 2011

Some say what up are is nothing but a slimy bottom feeder
Some say what you do is help them on a Friday catch a fish or two.
Some would step on you, squash your little body on the rainy
pavement
Few know what you bring is so much more than meets the naked
Eye (I) no longer wonder why the first would be the last
And the last would be the first.
You should not be surprised if the one who saves your life
tomorrow
Comes from six feet under.
Worm, you little coil in the soil get the scrapple from the apple
and the meat off the street,
little worm, crawling through the night out of sight, underground what
you find you will grind,
wiggly worm, nibble on that pebble that you found underground leaving
minerals behind.
The grass is green ‘cause you do your thing, undisputed master of
recycling
Some say what you are is nothing but a nasty little creepy crawly,
Some say what you do is crawl in two directions when sliced in two
Some cremate instead so you can not get a hold of their
leftovers,
If you die instead, gone will be the days of wine and roses here
upon this
Earth would be a wasteland if the service you portray finally
would go away
Nobody breaks down the funk with a passion quite like you, now I
know your love is true
Worm, you little coil in the soil get the scrapple from the apple
and the meat off the street,
Worm, crawling through the night out of sight, underground what
you find you will grind,
Worm, nibble on that pebble that you found underground leaving
minerals behind.
The grass is green ‘cause you do your thing, undisputed master of
recycling
