Spare the Spider
Arachnophobia is the fear
some feel when there’s a spider near.
Although most spiders would not hurt
when seen they put me on alert
it is their creepy crawly-ness
that causes me a mite of stress.
When tucked up safely in my bed
I suddenly observed a thread
a spider’s web away up high
with ominous dark creature nigh.
I knew it would be hard to doze
with spider sharing my repose
so up I got and left the room
to fetch a spider-reaching broom.
I took the web, the spider too
outside they went without ado
‘cause if you want to live and thrive
you let the spider stay alive.
