Spiders

You should always keep a spider
At least one in every room
Give them a little corner
With an offering of food

They'll spin away at night
And they'll hunt for you by day
Keeping your house clean of pests
In their very special way

So do not go hard with insect spray
When bluebottles and flies come your way
Remember the little spiders
Who hide themselves away

Wow, spiders. I am not fond of them. I know they can't eat much, but I don't want them crawling on me. Once my daughters found a tarantula and wanted him for a pet, so they put him in a class jar with a few holes in the lid, and that thing finally spun a large web around himself and never moved. I think he hibernated, because he stayed like that all winter long, and when spring came, he started moving around. The girls started feeling sorry for him, thinking he may be hungry, so they took him away from the house and let him go. I was glad.
