“Spider” by Jimmy Jazz


Watch the spider.
He has spun his web.
And those strands are strong!
From many feet away
He has built his base.
And those strands are strong!
The spider crawls along a strand he has made.
He violently bobs in the wind, helpless- not quite:
Those strands are strong.
He crawls along a thin line.
He crawls along so sublime.
Working all the way,
Making more strands to be connected to earlier spun ones.
Over from the drain pipe,
Where the water floods in;
And then, swings and slides down-
Whoeeee!
Those strands are strong!
