Spider And The Fly - Poem by TPAC Alexander Coppedge
I'm over flowers going low watch me,
said fly to small spider below him,
see as I go slow: look at me so high.
We-e-ee, framed up soaring moments,
changing I'm in a tame hit dive before you,
at once wings beat same time.
Said dun spider no wings have I,
merely I sit in sun dangling in the wind,
can't fly to have fun with you.
Show me your wonder said spider please,
slip by fly fell into a blunder,
a reply with no ponder to him care free.
Flattered caught by your grace,
with eyes glance upon you,
my cool movements by precise flight dance actions.
Fly whirls in air turning body,
by had performance viewed fair,
reaching top speeds to raise spider hair.
Spider watches the fly go about,
wish had imply in mind but a doubt,
a sly grin as it came to check him out.
Sudden pulling ting the fly stopped short,
trapped in a web him sing out,
a gasp by grasp and sling then slurp.
