Spider, Please Step Forward

You put your right foot in, and the other one, and the other one, and the other one,
and the other one, and the other one, and the other one, and the other one.
You put your right foot out, and the other one, and the other one, and the other one,
and the other one, and the other one, and the other one, and the other one.
You do the hokey pokey and you weave another web,
that’s what it’s all about.

Will the following spider please step forward.

You weave your webs
to little fanfare
blinged out with dew
in the chill morning air
but they’re the ones I see,
for invisible in space,
are the ones I walk smack into
strung all across my face.

    • Sheri- I’m the resident spider killer in our house. Someone screams (usually my wife) and I go squish it. Funny story: The other day I was doing my recycling and I’m talking to the guy helping me there. This good sized black spider slowly crawls across his chest. Quickly I realized that if I said, “hey, you’ve got a big spider on you,” there was a good chance he would do something unmanly like scream and do a silly dance. So, I decided in the interest of saving his face that I wouldn’t do or say anything. The spider moved out of sight and the moment was over… except it came back and crawled around some more. Once again it disappeared. I hope it didn’t bite him later on.
