I Know! Thinking quickly said Mr Wiggly Worm
just take my bottom half although it might make me squirm.

He'd already thought he was a little overweight
& this would of course perhaps miraculously save his fate.
OK. Said Mr Shiny Blackbird with agreement look from far off brown nest mate.

So with just a little silent Oh! the deed was done & tension quickly eased
& both Misters Worm & Blackbird were surprisingly quite pleased.

That proved that this could work for everyone concerned
with Mr Worm's more but smaller holes keeping soil still very nicely churned.

Also Mr & Mrs Blackbird's offspring were full up to their brim
all showed off with their song they always like to sing.

I won't repeat it now the repetitive one that I'm afraid gets you all annoyed
that sends you off out of range just anything to avoid!

So an interesting reminder that with give & take comes both problems & success
& of course brings the main thing all do want, mostly much Happiness!
