Black Widow - Poem by Janelle Morehart

Black widow come spin me your web
Black widow with your poisonous love
Your silk threads they trap me
Your poison it kills me
Black widow, Black widow
How can this be?
You, a god's creature, can seem so evil indeed
Black on red, Red on black
Your devil's tirade won't ever end
One string connects to another
One web becomes two
Three will be four
While four becomes more
Black widow with your oh so special love
Do you dare catch a dove?
Something so white and pure
Do you dare poison it?
So that it may never fly again
Black widow you amuse me so
I wonder how any could let you go
With your poison love and trapping web
Ah black widow
I love you so
