She Only Likes Spiders

She only likes spiders

That she knows

Not those whose toes and stripes

She has not seen before

They could jump or run quickly

They could be quite

Ugly with enormous fangs hanging down

Sharp and still

Waiting or leaping

For her!

(This stranger-spider’s

Next kill)

Are we crazy?

Ask her to capture

This thing that has caught

Her attention

(With quite a bit of gusto

I should mention)

Seize but risk the terrible


Yes that is crazy,

Forgive that which is parental

Haziness and hastiness

Goodness bless us

She only likes spiders that she knows


And “Some bugs can talk”
