If you open a can of worms
don’t be afraid to pick them up.
They may be dirty and full of germs
but so is a fuzzy, cute pup.
There’s squirming and slime to handle
but it all comes out in the wash.
You can’t smash them with a sandal
cause that has no style or panache.
You should never just run away,
leaving others to clean up the mess.
Just start gathering with no delay
to prevent any future stress.
If you put them in a brand new home
where they can be happy and free
They can prosper and thrive as they roam
fertilizing the soil of life’s tree.
