I prepare myself for a deep relaxing bath but that dratted spider was out to have a laugh As I pour scented bubble bath into the water Spidey climbs the wall - he’d also bought his daughter*! He raises a spindly leg as if to wave hello that pesky crawling spider really needs to go It's a living a nightmare, it isn’t a dream So I emit a very loud ear piercing scream My heroic hubby dashes to my aid as my distress was clearly displayed Whilst I stand their screaming like a stupid bimbo hubby tosses the weeny spider out the bathroom window Alas the daddy spider he has other plans and wriggles his way out of hubby’s hands Hubby drops the creepy critter onto the floor spidey plans his escape, he's heading for the door Hubby pounces on him at breakneck speed and squashes him flat ... he’s dead indeed* *A great deal of poetic licence – thankfully there was only one spider and he was tossed out of the Window* I think the warm weather is bringing these pesky spider’s out from hiding:-( Follow up poem to www.poetrysoup.com/poem/i_confessed_to_a_cold_blooded_murder_1029155 6/9/18

You sound like me Jan, calling for your husband's help when there's a critter in the house that needs capturing. Lol. I am not good with crawly creatures. A well written and entertaining poem Jan. I enjoyed it. : )

I like the sequel as well as the first!! I really don't mind spiders because they eat roaches, which I really hate! Orkin takes care of all the little pests around our home now! Great write!......Pat

Great couplets, but I'm bias, poor spiders, they actually do a lot of good around the house, eating lots of other things that really could bite and do you harm, in the dark when you can't see they'll be taking mosquitoes quite easily, along with loads of nasties, go on let the spiders run free, but out the window if you really must, peace of mind, reasons justified, its what I do to keep to my Mrs satisfied. hugs Mick

Gripping and alarming tale of something that terrifies many, great story though of a damsel in distress, a White Knight hero and a happy ever after. Could anyone ask for more.
