SPIDERWEBS
© Jane Cassidy

 
In the doorway the spider was spinning
Her web with perfection and grace:
An intricate pattern precisely designed
To catch dinner and keep it in place,
But a doorway is prone to have people
Come through with a duster or broom
And show no respect for a spider’s hard work.
They’d much rather have a clean room.

In the window the spider was weaving
Her web with a semblance of care:
A regular pattern so nicely designed
To catch dinner and keep it right there,
But a window is prone to have people
Come through with a duster or broom
And show no respect for a spider’s hard work.
They’d much rather have a clean room.

In the corner the spider was making
Her web with a lick and a spin:
Not much of a pattern but still it’s designed
To catch dinner and have it stay in,
But a corner is prone to have people
Come through with a duster or broom
And show no respect for a spider’s hard work.
They’d much rather have a clean room.

In the attic the spider was sitting
In the dust, all curled up in a ball:
No hope of a pattern that could be designed
To catch dinner. She’d given up all,
For an attic is sure to have people
Come through with a sweeper someday,
And the spider was sure there was no use to try.
She was certain she’d fail anyway.
