Beauty and the Beasts


Magnificent Writing SpiderAmazing and beautiful Writing Spider
What a wondrous web you weave
Of finely spun silken threads of moonbeams:
Biding your time,
With your corkscrew signature
Holding you secure,
You wait for passing prey.
Ugly – the lies and deceit of others;
Spinning their stories to deny or to cover
The sins they then declare to a father
At the local church where they could easily discover
The priest is the worst of the lot and his wine
Is not so much for communion as a drunken old time
But why rock the boat when he absolves them of their impure thoughts?
Eight-legged stunner of bright shining colour
You wait patiently for a mate
Who weaves his web close to your own,
So that you can consummate.
Thus when the time is right
And after the mating is complete
A sac of babies will be spun.
Awful – the cheating and bullshit involved
Making some commissions – How desperate and sad are they
Who take no time to listen or discover
What benefits their clients need,
Their work would offer an added bonus.
If they took more care.
But perhaps they are not intending
To actually work for their rewards!
This Writing Spider – also known as Orb
Repeatedly reworks her threads.
A strong and perfect work of art is shaped
That will catch and hold her prey.
Destroying the web daily, she aims to keep it strong
So eats itand weaves afresh each night.
No shirker of hard work.
Ignorant sales sharks care little for their prey
Simply attacking,
They feed on the fears of others,
Attempting to spin a tangled web
As they practice their deceit.
And when things go wrong they will
Accept no responsibility
Shifting the blame where they may.

About travell1ngthroughl1fe

I am a fun-loving person who goes with the flow and travels through life most of the time though sometimes I have to be responsible when others try to get me on their track! Most of the time though people tell me I am barking mad! hahahaha! Life is short but oh so sweet so I believe in looking out for the bright side of life and I can always find a positive in everything! Half-empty glasses are not for me. Negativity is an ill I want to cure in everyone. Only after you heal your own soul can you help to really heal the world. So when you need help, ask for it and where it is offered, gratefully accept it as a gift.
