"I am an insect and I live in the grass,
Terrified of being eaten at every blade that I pass.
I look out for spiders,nasty,evil and scary,
With numerous eyes,sharp fangs and feet that are hairy.
Pursued by a spider once I'm lucky to be still alive.
He was distracted by a fly,thankfully I did survive."
Spiders inspire fear like few animals will.
Lurking in webs lying ready to kill.
Spiders inspire fear like no animals do,
To live and thrive flush them down the loo.
But when you do this stop and think,
They are also capable of climbing up the plug hole into your sink.
A lady I know confesses to sleeping with a vacuum cleaner by her bed,
As fears of spiders in her house festered in her head.
Tabloids love to spread tales which are a web of lies,
They benefit us in lots of ways like killing swarms of flies.
As I am writing this I must have a laugh,
I've just seen a spider swimming in my bath.
The planet wouldn't be the same if it wasn't for the spider.
A long carpet of insects covering it would get wider and wider.
A spider in your bedroom is not interested in nibbling your toes,
As into our homes food searching and multiplying he confidently goes.
In Cambodia and Venezuela eight legged meals on the menu appear,
No phobias out there ,they devour their fear !
