she didn't mean to unravel

but mild weather and rain

soaked her web and rather than

laying her eggs and dying

she hung there in a stupor for

days until even the strongest

strands broke and she fell to

the floor in front of the main door

young man with the purple

mohawk jumped away and

said something unrepeatable

and two girls scrambled to

one side then an older gentleman

strode forward he lifted up his

foot to squish the beast but

was intercepted by a push as

another pregnant lady

shouted don't kill her she is full

of eggs we need spiders let

me put her back outside

but by then security had arrived
