Octahedral - Poem by Patti Masterman

Octagonal architect,
Arachnid arcane:
Four pairs of legs
Two eyes frame.

Air-breathing arthropod
Of gossamer filament;
Arachne's god
Of stealth is militant.

Spinneret fluid
Enshrouds the prey,
While dextrous plumes
Form downy stays.

Quadrilateral webs
Reticulate-
The eight-armed compass
Won't hesitate.

Aerial flyers,
Air walkers supreme-
But octahedrals
Are just the meme.
