Beware the Chocolate Spiders!

Beware! Beware! Beware!
The haunting time of year!
When chocolate spiders hatch,
Spreading candy fear!

You may think that’s just a costume,
A Halloween disguise
But take a second look:
Count that creature’s eyes!

Don’t think of trick OR treat:
To them it’s all the same!
Weaving caramel webs
Around your window frame…

Lurking in the darkness…
Hiding out of sight…
Then dropping down in front of you
Giving you a FRIGHT!

You yelp and drop your candy;
Sprint off down the street
Those spiders give a cackle
And eat up every treat!

Beware! Beware! Beware!
The chocolate spider scare!

  1. Like it. Are you doing one for the Halloweensie thing? I thought I might have a go. Watch this space. No, that’s wrong. Watch my space. As in my blog, not the abandoned social media thing.
    Anyway, great spider poem!

  2. How could you combine something that I love more than life itself and possibly my own womb-fruit, (chocolate) with something that I hate more than the Kardashians? (spiders)
    This poem is akin to cognitive behavioural therapy. Never will I touch another chocolate for fear that it may hatch…maybe…possibly…okay, I lied…
