Such humour you pour out in your poems at times, and all in good rhyme my dear haha! I feel with spiders, its how quick they can move. Believe it or not, i do find them beautiful, moreso tarantulas. I once had a ' Mexican-pink toe' tarantula, however the smaller ones we get around the house, im not too keen on, the irony :)
Much love, M :)x
Thankyou Michael for your lovely comments :) i cant imagine having a tarantula in my house but i know what yoh mean. They are so big that they almost look like a small animal whilst the normal big black house soiders look more scary. Take care. Milly x
Way to go Milly, one night in our family room, I saw this little reddish spider scurry across the floor, I leapt up, shoe in hand, he wasn't going to the Promise Land. Bashed him once or twice with the heel of my shoe, to my utter surprise, it leaped about two feet high, this guy refused to die, into the garage I ran, grabbed a huge bug killer can, sprayed him good, until no longer he ran.
I'm not a big fan of spiders, but for a theme for a poem they have a lot to offer. You have managed to make light of a potentially horrific situation.
I wrote one years ago. My spider was lonely and looking for love. Your menacing spider came to a gruesome end, one which he deserved.
Good job. Xx
