Along Came A Spider

Along Came A Spider
Author: John Ginesi
When we all think of spiders we think of
them as a annoying insect that bothers
us around our homes or in the garden
The spider is one of the most intelligent
insects in the world. They have the ability
to build their own home without the help
from other spiders and in very quick time.
The spider web is a masterpiece in 
engineering design, glistening when the sun's
rays shine across the gossamer threads as
each fibre resonates when the wind
blows through it or when unsuspecting 
prey stumble into it.
When the spider needs food he hides
at the corner of the web waiting for
an insect to stumble into this elaborate
trap, the spider then strikes down his 
victim;  spiders can co exist with everyone
if they  are allowed to be left alone.
