the truth about spiders

~

the truth about spiders  (  sredips tuoba hturt eht  )



spiders are an arachnid

like the scorpion


spiders crawl with eight legs

& six phantom limbs


spiders are silent

but speak all the tongues


spiders live on marzipan

pickled eggs & coleslaw


spiders sleep in garden sheds

      or underneath your futon      


spiders dance the cancan

& play the ukulele


spiders cry at christenings

but laugh at funerals - too


spiders write erotic haiku

on the backs of first class stamps


spiders run the b.b.c

the w.i & the caravan club


spiders rise in sunshine

but melt in the rain


spiders on the brain again

spiders, spiders, spiders


spiders, spiders, spiders

spiders
