1. The Great Harvey Plash

Many years ago Dexter’s great great grandpa caught some bad luck

He was sliding along, enjoying the rainy weather, and his body got stuck

Then along came a huge machine, and with loud beeping sounds

It dumped all the junk on him, and he was covered underground

Well this worm’s name was Harvey, the great Harvey Plash

He was meant for such greatness, but now covered in trash

You see, Harvey didn’t realize that this place was such trouble

That he was sliding on a landfill, a place meant for sewage, swill, and rubble

His first instinct was to try and creep to the surface

He loved the weather so much; it gave him so much purpose

He said, “I will creep so hard and so long that all the other worms will call me ' the creeper'"

But as the pile became higher and higher, he was left deeper and deeper

As time went on, Harvey’s dreams were changed

The place in his heart where his old life once dwelled, was joyfully rearranged

He met a nice girl who filled him with glee

And they started a family, under all the debris

And life went on, with little thought of the top

And generations of Plash’s were born under the slop

They carved out their space, it was actually quite cozy

They had many nice neighbors, not one of them nosey

But when Dexter was born, an adventure began

That took the Plash name far beyond the trash can
