Brighter side of BRIGHTER-WRITER

         “My Hero”

Watching TV out of the corner of my eye
Under the table a spider I did spy
I looked at him, he stared right back at me
My heart beat fast, coming towards me I see

I really screeched and jumped off the chair
He was gaining fast, his legs spiked with hair
The terror I felt as I started to run
I zigzagged, he zigzagged, positively not fun

Circled down the hall, he turned the corner too
Being chased by a spider, what should I do
Screaming I dashed, looked back, swear he grew
Hid myself by the fridge, heart now in my throat
Cried for my dad, he got up, ditched the remote
Pop wondered, what’s the fuss, came to my rescue
I held my breath ’til I was turning blue
When the spider saw my daddy, he stopped and froze
Arachnid looked him up and down, knows how it goes

Spidy seemed confused, settled to run for the door
Dad, his big boots, bravely squished him on the floor
Mommy came into the kitchen her eyes opened wide
Calmed my nerves, cleaned the mess, gross I confide
