Stephen Katona Poems
Spider In My Pencil Case
From a group of boys,
Came excited jabbering noise.
In the corner of the playground,
There was something they had found.
A boy called Tom poked it with a stick,
Watching made me feel quite sick.
I could see it was a baby spider,
My first thought was to hide her.
I cupped her in my hands,
And resisted all the boys demands,
Firmly saying 'no,
I'll never let her go! '
She tickled my palm,
Glad to be safe from harm.
I thought hard about a hiding place,
Then dropped her in my pencil case.
From that day on she was my pet.
I kept her safe ...
My Queen And Her Cats
Never have I seen,
Such a beautiful queen.
Your arms around a lion's head,
No fear that he might not have fed.
Oh sure he looks small and cute,
Until he bites right through your boot.
Still that purring little leopard cub,
Looks grateful for his tummy rub.
He rakes your arms with his claws,
