‘Black Widow Marionette’ – Artwork by Johan Swanepoel


All decent blokes support the feminists. However, in one society the masculists – is that a real word? – need a helping hand. You probably knew this already. In case you didn’t, ‘Black widow spiders are arachnids that are known for the females’ unique appearance and tendency to eat their mates’ – courtesy of livescience.com.


The spider climbed the old brick wall
He was looking for a bed
He’d left his web unattended
At least that’s what he said


By the time he’d reached the rooftop
He stopped to take a rest
And that was when he saw her
She looked great, he was impressed


So he thought that he must tell her
She was the most beautiful black spider girl
She smiled and said ‘thank you, Sir’
And gave him a sexy twirl


Later, under a full moon
They made love on a chimney stack
When that was over and done with
Was the time of her attack


She didn’t plan to do it
It’s just the way that she was made
She ate him alive for supper
Straight after getting laid


She never could help herself
Every lover she had got ate
Not one of them escaped her bite
Was it bad luck or was it fate?


Today, just my ‘heartbeat silhouette’ song called ‘Tick Tock’.  I hope you enjoy.

    1. I was trying to think of something humorous to write then remembered that I got an ethical spider friendly spider capturing thing for Christmas where the spider doesn’t get killed. Now this. Thanks, Yasmin ~ George
