Worm - Poem by Angie Krause

It has been calm
For a while now
I see the worm
Squirming in somehow

Trying to creep
In from the cracks
Doesn't know I watch
In the corners in the back

The worm brings darkness
Lies and deceit
The young one is in danger
With the company she keeps

The worm will sneak and squirm
All through your head
Until you feel it take over
And you wish you were dead

The young one must deny
The worm and its lies
Or darkness will creep in
Causing you grief and despise

The young one needs to see
The hidden dangers ahead
The worm can squim in
And manipulate your head
