The Spider…a poem

there was an itty bitty spider
who climbed up a bad man’s
leg
down went her fangs
and she poisoned him to death
when the sun came up
and the women found the
corpse
they built the spider
a home of her own
and fed her her
favorite food everyday
for the rest of her life
fortunately
the spider had many children
and she taught all of them
how to hunt bad men
so the tradition
continued
and the cemetery
quickly became
overcrowded
but the town
was full of
kind men
happy women
and
spiders
and really
who could ask
for more
than that
