Black Widow
March 21, 2005

Never sated

Always craving

Thick ivory threads awaited

A meal to stray to her binding

Terror lingered on the walls she crawled

Yet she a part of nature and small

Vulnerable were her victims

Tangled in the web of lies

Poisonous they have been

Woven expertly with her wiles

No one heeded the warning

No one understood the malice of her bite

A deadly creature hidden inside

Black widow she was
