Title: King of Shadows
Animal: Spider

In the far left hand corner, 'neath the old coffee tray,
Lurking deep in the shadows and stalking my prey.

Sleek and professional, a true Jack the Ripper,
Hidden from view by your pink bunny slipper.

My weapons are many; with poison and fang
I'll torture and terrify, abuse and harangue.

I rule the dark places, a true power coup,
Till I meet my demise on the heel of your shoe.


Note: "coup" - pronounced "coo", just in case anyone didn't know.

The End
