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 ...
Smart Phone Zombie
Hey you, 'Smart Phone Zombie',
Here's some advice for free:
A life in cyberspace,
Is a shocking disgrace.
Tonight there's a local dance,
Where you can find true romance;
Someone you can embrace,
With a real human face.
