A Gourmet Affair
by Haim Kadman

Tip the little spider
Was a daring glider
He packed his cobweb
And while hanging
on a thread up above
went a gliding
in search of love…

Drawn by a fascinating scent
He landed on a glittering net
Was welcomed with enjoyment
But my oh my
He was treated like a fly…

‘We haven’t even mated yet…’
He protested with a desperate shout
‘I’ve had enough you bet!’
Was the reply with a full mouth
that put an end to the little louse.
