A Relentless Spider ©
Bryon D. Howell
A selfish man who acted on a thought
did not survive his action's aftermath.
Inside a web of madness he was caught
and he could not escape the spider's wrath.
A venom was injected and it set
inside this man who acted on a whim.
It filled his soul with anguish and regret -
the spider got the very best of him.
And though the man tried hard to get away
the spider grabbed him holding on so tight.
It's for this reason we must fill our day
with good intentions that are fair and right.
Of course this spider has a real name -
but me, I just prefer to call him, "Shame".
