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 Sir Thomas Wyatt

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
