There was a spider in the bath
Scratching it’s way to the top
But he kept falling back down
and it’s trying never stopped
I left a towel over the rail for it to get out
I hope it doesn’t find the bedroom or my husband will have to throw it out!
Next morning I found it, safe and snug
in a web it made
hanging over the bath, it looked happy it had made today
I saw it sitting there like a ninny
waiting for flies to catch
what a silly place to make a web I said to the spider
then a fly it snatched
it’s still there, now it’s evening sitting on it’s hearth
I hope it’ll be gone when I get back, it’s time to have my bath!
But no, dinner was done and it was still there, staring into a void
remembering that fateful day when it’s life was almost devoid
My husband I called to get it out, I need a restful bath
and now that spider has been evicted, I can rest at last!
