Mighty Mighty Spider

Now usually when a spider finds its way into my home
I squash it right away saying, hey my space alone

But one day I came upon a fuzzy little spider there upon my dryer
Frantically running up and down the chrome strip which looked like a mirror

He bravely reared up and fought this villain in his way
Up and down this battle raged a good part of the day

I laughed so hard my stomach hurt, but he didn't care
He boldly continued his plight, the enemy was near

The battle over and he's laying still, I wonder to myself
Was it victory? Or was he awaiting his pending death?

I gently took him outside and placed him on a tree
And told him, you're the mightiest little spider I ever did see

    Love it,,,,, when I find spiders in my house, I get a tall plastic glass" ones they give you drinks in at the fair. And catch them and throw them out side ;}

    Yes. I have rescued a number of daddy-long-legs from my shower. They dare not get those skinny legs wet. As for big black spiders - no way! Enjoyed. I wrote a couple of spider things myself. LOve, Daver

    My wife gets rid of all the spiders here, and we have our share out in the country! I'm deathly afraid of them, I can't stand the sight of them! I enjoyed your confrontation you had with this mighty spider my friend! What a glorious poem! Great Work!!
