Spiders she can't abide.  Petrified, 
she applied insecticide inside; 
but then came all undone 
when a really big one 
tried for a ride down her hide outside.

    Yes John, I try to stay away from them as much as possible and your verse doesn't endear them at all. Love their webs but repulsive little critters. you sure gave the "I's" a spin in this and it is a lot of fun. :)

    SO CUTE, JOhn. I am feeling so miserable not able to comment as much to people as I want to. I get absorbed in the blogs and things and I end up doing even less. I hope to see more of your recent poems when time permits.(no I am not into astronomy, but i love astology!)

    Oooh! They scare me too, John. Funny limerick!!! Yes, I do write for myself and expect no fame, but the quote intrigued me. Most of us just write for pleasure. Love, Carolyn
