Then I saw a little guy.
He proudly looked me in the eye
and said, “There’s no need to fear.
Help is here. I’ll get you clear.”
From the top of his head
to the tip of his toes,
he was slightly less large
than the size of my nose!
I said, “I’m too big and you’re too small.
It’s clear you have no chance at all.”
He said, “I’ll get you out, no need to worry.
You have the word of V. G. Mugurry.”
I sneered, “You’re no bigger than my ear!
I’ll be stuck forever and left right here.”
He replied, “You have nothing to lose to let me try.
I have big ideas for a little guy.”
“Besides,” he said in his little voice,
“it seems to me you have no choice.
So why not just wait and see
if I’m able to set you free.”
“Okay,” I sighed to V. G. Mugurry.
“I’ll give you a chance, but please do hurry!
I’m tired of being in this bush;
these thorns are sharp and hurt my tush!”
