Along Came A Hairy Spider





Eight legged hairy spider
We can see it everywhere
It can’t fly but with a long and sticky web
Insects will stuck and grab it with speed

On one moonless starry night
The shadow of a spider is in sight
Combined with color orange and black
On top of the giant leaves ready to attack

On its throne between two trees
Lies a perfect web for flying insects
A home for a king with fangs so big
Perfect position for grabbing flies on twigs

    Was it wrong of me that my hair stood up a little as I read this? This was a very enjoyable piece. But, I feel the need to stand up & get some fresh air now. lol
