The Black Widow - Poem by Ruby Mae Heard

An animal no bigger that a dinner plate
Can kill a man in a matter of hours
Then with all four eyes turns to her mate
And he too she then devours

She is red underneath the rest is black
She has four eyes, eight legs and sixteen knees
So check you room before you hit the sack
And respect her if you please
