Wormery

by Peggy Unsworth

Did you know that worms like bananas?
And they really like banana skins
A completely different kettle of fish.

Worms have a medley of meanings
Some folk are afflicted with worms
A kind of creepy crawly that preys on them
But then some dogs are too
Perhaps they’re universal.

When I say the word worms with a German accent
I’m reminded of a place in Europe
In some important way historical like a Treaty
But not being a history buff In fact quite the reverse
I couldn’t tell you its actual significance.

It’s also used as a verb
As in She could worm her way
Into one’s deepest affections.

I’m sure you could name other meanings
But I’ll leave you to your musings
And can’t wait to see what happens.
