"The early bird catches the worm", as told by fate

but the clever worm is one who sleeps late.

The early birds often go hungry before giving up

not realizing that it's the late bird who catches the worm on the cusp

of coming out, thinking that from the early bird, they're finally safe.

    Good one. Well done.

  • This limerick offers a fresh take on the classic adage "The early bird catches the worm." It brings in the perspective of the worm, and how the "clever" ones might wait until the early birds have given up before emerging.
