Spider and Fly


SPIDER=I welcome you to dinner, and have something
nice in mind for you.

The fly breath deep and buzzed his wings.

FLY=I think i should reconsider on that thought not
everyone is nice, Thank you but i have to get home it's getting
late.

The spider shock her body and made her web vibrate
the fly jump and shiver in dread.

SPIDER=I give my word that nothing bad will come
to you, just you and me friends? maybe a bottle of wine
perhaps a game or two?

The fly stop still and look in to the spider 8 eyes.

FLY= i've rethought your offer and agent all better judgment
i will join you for supper.
