I spy something beginning with s...
on candystripe legs the spiderman comes
softly through the shadow of the evening sun
stealing past the windows of the blissfully dead
looking for the victim shivering in bed searching out fear
in the gathering gloom and suddenly!
a movement in the corner of the room!
and there is nothing i can do when i realize with fright
that the spiderman is having me for dinner tonight!
quietly he laughs and shaking his head creeps closer now
closer to the foot of the bed and softer than shadow
and quicker than flies his arms are all around me
and his tongue in my eyes
"be still be calm be quiet now my precious boy
don't struggle like that or i will only love you more for
it's much too late to get away or turn on the light
the spiderman is having you for dinner tonight"
and i feel like i'm being eaten by a thousand million shivering furry holes
and i know that in the morning i will wake up in the shivering cold and the spiderman is always hungry...
"Come into my parlour", said the spider to the fly... "I have something... "
