This afternoon’s session with Alison Chisholm went really well. Lovely lady, a great teacher of the craft. To celebrate, what better than a poem? Thanks to Phil for this philosophical little piece.
What does he live on, the spider in the bath?
It’s not a great place for flies to cross his path,
yet he’s fit and healthy and obviously clean,
roams end to end his vast domain from what I’ve seen.
Every ploy he uses of arachnid guile
to coax the nutrients out of bathroom tile,
but when we wish we could soak away the gunge,
Incey Wincey’s there, so we can’t take the plunge !
