Watch me running,

I am fast,

see me scuttle

quickly past.

Warm and safe

in silver web,

sticky, silky

cobweb bed.

Creeping, crawling

here and there,

up the walls,

in your hair.

Eight long legs

and lots of eyes,

I spin webs

and catch the flies,

then I eat them

for my tea.

Very tasty,

and they’re free!
