Spider on the ceiling

There's a spider on my ceiling He's been sitting there all night From the moment that I spotted him He gave me quite a fright. Even at the long off distance He appears to be quite big I've never really liked them ever since I was a kid. When I have to walk beneath him I run quickly along the wall I dare not walk beneath him knowing my luck he would fall. I yell up to my partner "Get down here its bloody back!" It cant be the same spider? Because I sucked him up the Vac. I rush into the kitchen If the kids see him they'll freak I drag out our old cleaner And attachments with long reach I drag them in the living room plug in and then switch on. Then I look up at the ceiling And the bloody thing has gone! written and composed by Mark Longson (c) 2018
