The Secret Wormy Box - Poem by sarah clifford

They told me I never should open this box
They tied it with thick string and locked it with locks
But I’ve got some scissors and I’ve got some keys
And I’m down in the basement and down on my knees
I took the scissors and cut through the string
I turned the key and undid everything
I placed both my hands one on each side
I carefully opened it wide
I shut it up quickly, oh what a scare
A scary fright gave me such a turn
When I saw that hairy old worm
