Spider Misunderstood

Creepy crawly spider climbing up a tree Sparkling eyes outstanding looking right at me I stare right back at the beady baubles Hoping not to be seen When it jumps right out of its great big web And lands upon my blue jean I flutter, I flap, I scream and stamp But intact the spider stays Clinging on for the love of it Enjoying the sways and sways I begin to calm to look a while To observe this spiders truth Then it jumped right on my shoulder I truly hit the roof Again I screamed, I flapped and jumped As spider rocked with joy I spun and spun and fell right down This spider had a ploy It looked at me those blackened eyes Then a tear it did display She wasn’t trying to scare me But wanted just to play.

My father-in-law climbed the walls at the mere hint of a spider; you must have seen him! Enjoyed, Angela! (the captcha code is BAM)
