While dusting the edges of the grain barn I came across a very large spider. So large was it, that she reminded me of the children’s nursery rhyme about Incy Wincy Spider and the problems of a downpipe. Unfortunately, being me, I had to take it further and strike up a conversation…
“Good morning Mr Farmer,”
shouted Incy spider across to I,
“You’re not going to hurt me,
‘tis not my time to die.”
“I have forty-nine young children,
three are not at school,
Sharon and Simone are poorly,
Shane is playing football!”
“Nine have left PE kit at home,
twelve have earned detention,
and Sam is in teacher’s very bad books,
for not paying enough attention!”
“My husband’s at the pub,
ogling the barmaid’s six legs,
the silly fool dreams of giving her,
a clutch of fifty eggs!”
By then I’d heard enough,
“Please see your own way out,
troubles you have plenty,
Just mind that water spout!”
Have a great day, may your troubles all be smaller than anticipated.
