Arachn Idvasion

27 Mar

once upon a time
thought I would like to watch
a diligent spider
fabricate its nest to completion
but now, I had little choice
oh, the offensive beastie
climbed right into my ear

commenced wrapping its sticky
cobwebs around my unguarded mind
yes, this nightmare of all
my waking frights ambled about
rolling and knotting my thoughts in its
pinching, chop-stick, weaving fingers

old eight-eyes drug its octopus body
up and down through the dank corridors
of my cracking cerebrum
and could, now and then, peer with malice
out my eyeballs

the sly earwig came in
as I was listening to the daily news
one fascinating story after another
and it squeezed its fat body right in
and I let it, in fact,
inadvertently, welcomed it
and it didn’t need
an invite

it thrust itself in,
thrumming waxy ear-canals
with its propagandizing drippings
filling my thick-boned cranium
damn thing came busy too
yes, from the web
spinning, and re-spinning
an elaborate net
in the head
