pet worm disappears

I had a worm who was fuzzy and nice
he'd crawl all over the beans
and add color to the rice

Orville was his official name
and though he was quite tranquil
he liked to wiggle just the same

we'd play together often
and share every thought
then one day, he headed for the lettuce,
climbed the potato salad
dived into the fruit bowl
and put a dent into the big apple
I think he dug his little coffin,
and there he got caught!
