My Long Legged Friend

EER_0614

I have a little spider who lives among my tools

With long gangly legs she maneuvers her web

Like a giant robot in a factory assembly line

She weaves fine strands to catch unsuspecting fools

EER_0613

Some unsuspecting fly or a gnat gets entangled

She wraps her dinner for later in the day

As quick as a flash her reactions far reaching

As flies and bugs get injected and strangled

EER_0615

Her web of fine silk is thinner than your hair

A predesigned pattern programmed in her

Every strand exactly placed perfectly aligned

So thin it blends in you cannot even tell it’s there

EER_0613

When I come by and rattle my tools

She scurries to the top to hang on her foundation

Knowing one movement can ruin her day

Making her start over catching unsuspecting fools
