The Spider - Poem by Dorsey Baker

The spider
uses its web as a weapon
to catch its prey
and defend itself
against attack
The spider
is alert and keeps
itself alive
by being so
The spider
comes crawling across the floor
coming out
then going back
undercover
The spider
skillfully
plans its chosen path
because if detected!
enemy forces
would quickly
attack and destroy
The spider!
