I’ll fall for sure!

CATERPILLAR:

It is so dark… too dark to see…

It took so long to climb this tree…

Okay… okay…  I’ll go… I’ll go!

(Though why I should I do not know!)

See? I’m spinning, spinning this cocoon.

Oooo, I’m dizzy! This is too hard.

(grumble…) You ask too much.

(DREAM-MAKER:)        Nice n’ tight…

CATERPILLAR:

Yes, I’m here. I’m spinning. Nice and tight.

Why did You bring me here to this?  (Now what?)

I am squished in tight dark cell…

it is too hard… it is too much!
