A Web-King - Poem by Tajudeen Shah

How was he trapped in his own web,
Which was woven with silken skills,
Tested and proven since ages,
With a core from his own cells?
How could it be an accident;
During his usual course of hunt
For a flying prey, in whom venom
Instilled and liquefied with enzymes!
Had it been another manifestation
Of perseverance to a modern King,
As done to Robert Bruce the King
To regain the Scottish throne?
Speculations keep on mounting,
But, as his hollow SELF does still cling
To the web-hub, no prey dare swing
As they feel him still the Web-King!


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Still is there a dead spider cling by the tiled toilet corner...

    Spiders are very interesting creatures, though they may seem repulsive! Their perseverence is something we human beings have to learn from them.... Even in death, they create a sense of awe! A poem powerfully presented in rhyming verse! Enjoyed, Tajudeen! If time allows I invite you to read my poem Spider Yarn! (Report) Reply
