A Chapter by Dave Brown



When the spider offered the fly

A real friendly grin

There was no thought of it

Being a sin

Their relationship has been

Sent down through the ages

Even though that fly

Could consider it outrageous

Wrapped up and saved

For a future meal

To some, may seem depraved

And not at all ideal

But it keeps that Muscade nincompoop

From constantly getting

Into my soup

Hahahaha! I love this so much!!! I've always hated going to family reunions just because they were always outside and a bug would always fly into my food so his poem was super relatable. Thanks for sharing, Dave!!!

Spiders are great at keep big populations down. No that I particularly like spiders. As long as they aren’t on me or in the house we have an agreement I shall leave you in peace but if you jump at me you are a gonner lol

Ha, this is a fun write Dave and visual with it. I also pondered on what flavour the soup might be. I like broccoli and Stilton or carrot and coriander. Yummy. Not so yummy if the fly gets there first. Hope all is good with you.

True. One morning soon you will wake up and say Yes, it's here :))
I really like this. It was short and funny, without being overly simple or "childish." The rhyming words were well chosen. Good job!
