Spider Bait

“O what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.” 

Walter Scott


“Ouch, dammit! Stupid freaking spider!” 


“Spider Bait”

Spiders help or hurt

Depending on one’s point of view

Mine is somewhat jaundiced 

Having suffered bites of every hue.

Apparently my bedclothes

Harbor an arachnid

A sneaky little bastard

Who preys upon my bare shins.

Thoroughly I search the sheets

Looking for this menace

If he be wise he’ll run away

Or serve a fatal sentence.

  1. That’s a hell of a bite. Either you’re allergic or it’s venomous.

    In other news, that jumping spider is cute as hell. We have ultra-tiny ones here with black and white stripes called Zebra Jumping Spiders (yeah, the taxonomists aren’t poets) that dart away when you lean in close to admire them. I look forward to them every spring.
