I take a pleasure
In reaching under the sink
For any chemical
That should not be exposed
To extreme temperatures
And burning the spider
That has just descended
Into my sight on its
Insignificant but steely
Filament with its aerosol

To sting him
Is so effortless;
Anything engineered
Should do the job.
I shame him with
The success of my
Effort, and the failure
Of his.
