that first call alerts him,

eight legs run to the cot,

threads stream behind,

silken, the best he's got


each year they tighten,

vibrations excite more,

never stops watching,

repairs those that tore


escaping is impossible,

your destiny unfurling,

a decade like a second,

years like nets whirling


this one will never age

anymore than his web,

that snares all punters,

crowned king, or pleb


the web is beautiful,

every architect's toy,

a spider'scathedral,

prey there to enjoy


watch the fly struggle,

digging his own grave,

that's you and me, so,

be humble, be brave
