The Spider In The Corner


She has all the answers
if you care to ask
She waves them from the balcony
Like an American flag
The 4% of a world gone wrong,
flashes like a knife

She can take your fever
and grind it all the way down
Mounted again she is saying,
''Take it like a man.''

She plays five card stud
puts five aces down
She smiles knowing you can never win
Cain't help it, it's built in sin
I will wear her into the sheets

She was praying for the spider
The spider living inside her
Weaving webs, saying
'' I will wear you into the sheets.''

She will not find the poems upstairs
So she settles for me
She is incomplete, hollow as the web she weaves
She's ahold of me and deceives
Her fangs full, complete

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
