small little black spiders

crazy-crazy carnivore crew          

 

 

The morning dew flatters

Web into chandelier

A memory of beauty

A picture from Her I drew

 

 

King Mantis stares from among

Pearl drop covered stems

Hunger long over due

 

 

His head tilts from side to side

Tracing his path of vicious tide

These minions lives limited

 as broken shoe

 

 

But Lady Butterfly distracts the kill

Her tantalizing colors dancing to fill

Wings mesmerizing as petals of blue

 

 

She knows his plan and alters it quick

To lead King Mantis into a trick

He follows her to where she stands

Unaware of Mamma Spider

Dead without a clue

 

                

The End
