Caterpillar Cub

He looks a little anxious, as if he's just realized how far he's climbed...

Caterpillar cub
creeping up a tree
how will you get down?

Thought it would be fun
stealing from the bees
furry bear-cub clown

but now you're very, very
far above the ground.
Caterpillar cub
how will you get down?

The baby cub does look quite anxious, doesn't he? I remember that feeling when I thought I couldn't get down from some place I'd climbed up to. Your poem is a nice tribute to the little guy. Have a nice day.
