The Spider who complains

Good morning Mr. Spider
You complain and you complain
And your complaints is driving everyone insane
Today you complain
Yesterday you complained
Tomorrow you will complain
Listen I can’t listen you are causing me much pain
You complain whether there is sun or stormy rain
Those silly thoughts of yours have to be retrained

Good morning Mr. Spider
You complain and you complain
With complaining spun right into your brain
I wish to fly away from you faster than a plane
But I am a prisoner in your web that has been retained
In life positivism has to be maintained
Otherwise there is nothing good to gain
And your good intentions are in vain
You ought to pour your complaints into an infinite drain

Good morning Mr. Spider
How do I explain!
Your everyday complains have spilled out to the lanes
When they should have been carefully contained
I listen to your complains as I am your prisoner in silky chains
How I really wish I can escape from your domain
You complain and complain
Again and again and again
And you will still complain
Even when you have attained success along the food chain
Your life is just a web of complain campaigns
This is what I call a familiar vanity strain
But a positive attitude always has to be maintained

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
