This is dedicated to a dear friend of mine who suffers from aragnaphobia. After coming home from the pub one evening she had discovered a spider in her bedroom one night and decided to take what she deemed the only action to taken. She took her hockey stick from her sports bag and dealt with it....

Little Miss Muffet is a character in a children’s nursery rhyme. This is poetic license in the extreme :)

Miss Muffet


Little Miss Muffet
Sat on her tuffet
After coming home from the pub

When up came a spider
And sat down beside her
So she smashed it to bits with a club

Now Caroline wouldn’t use
Wouldn’t deign to let loose
With a club - ‘cause she isn’t so thick

And it was not just a thump
No despatch with a bump
But sure death by a huge hockey stick!!!
