The Daddy

September 11, 2016 at 3:43 pm (Poems) (, )

Respect the daddy longlegs
Get with his knobbly knees
Take care his fragile body
Treat kindly if you please.

He doesn’t like your vacuum
He doesn’t often rest
But hangs about the corners
It’s just where he feels best.

The daddy doesn’t harm you
He’s generally good
He eats the things that pester
and is misunderstood.

Respect the daddy longlegs
if you see him on your floor
please cup him very gently
and let him out the door.

    Charmingly quirky. Nice job Julia. I like this. Reminds me of the whimsy of ‘Big Foot’
