The Simple Spider
Have pity on the simple spider
Who was once leader of the universe
Weaving his web-world with
Domination and threat and
Obedience or else.
I was once a spider husband
Abandoned my thousands of offspring
To finish off the last wild world…
And having found this white blue life
And the fresh thought-air, I ran away
And spiked their travel-juice.
