Spider Man


a spider got caught
in a web of foul deceit
it itself had wrought

A spider spun, right from its rump,
A web of deceit: its name was Trump.

Rob! What a pleasant surprise this morning; so happy to see you :) As for the spider here, I'd advise it to not stick around too long if it cares to not get squished! ;)
