A new vocabulary is needed to describe how legless land creatures move. Worms, for example . . .
I have thought up a special new term
To describe how the common earthworm
Smoothly slithers around
All over the ground.
A slithery, slippery worm,
As every child can confirm,
Has no legs, toes or feet
And is quite incomplete
To experience the way of a worm,
With your arm held quite steady and firm
Put a worm on your hand –
Then you’ll soon understand
How to wigglysquigglysquirm!
