A Web-King


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!

    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
