Spider - Kieran Wyatt

It is a truth universally acknowledged

that spiders are unaware that the hair

on their snap apple legs is there

you could hardly call them limbs at all

they’re not nearly strong enough

and the spider dear reader

is in want of a shaven shriven wife


Hear now a truth

an arachnid cannot feel hair on him

they’re not nearly tough enough

and the arachnid dear listener

could have a forgiven wife with no hair

and be happy.
