Waking from dream
I just woke as if from a dream
Then realized that all was not
Exactly what I thought it seemed
I shook my head and looked around
I was not where I believed
But felt like six feet underground
I was but a mere skeleton
Comfy in my last resting place
In a cemetery in Brighton
Strangely looked from my empty shell
To see a passing worm stare at me
"Okay" He says "You're not in Hell"
"Good" I thought "Must get above ground"
"Woah!" Friendly worm then did say
"It's my job to keep you safe and sound"
I shook my skull and argued on
"What of my wife and family?"
"Surely they'll wonder where I've gone?"
Just how he laughed that little worm
"She's beside you; came down last week"
"New ones do tend to twist and turn"
So I laid back down as he said
As all worms friends got back to work
And wife and I snuggled in bed
