I get funny tingle
From head to my backside
As you creep across the ceiling 
To find somewhere to hide

You scuttle down the walls
Don’t dare to make a sound
Your teeny feet move quickly
Across uneven ground

You relax under the sofa
A spindly leg hangs out
“Oh, crap! A giant spider”
I cannot help but shout

“I’ll go and get a cup.”
My other half decides
And delicately captures you
To put you back outside

  1. Ha! I have to say that I’m not too bad with spiders, although I would rather not have them in the house… Now, if it had been a wasp…!! Brilliant, thank you so much for sharing with #ThePrompt x

  2. I’m not a big fan of spiders either. Especially if I’ve seen it in the room and then lose it again. I won’t go back in until someone has found it and removed it! x #ThePrompt
