A Place For Everything

IMGP6698

A place for everything they say
And that may well be so
Yet in the map that shows that place
There’s this one thing I know:
There should never ever be
A spider in the tub.

A mouse may have its little hole,
I see them come and go
With bits and bobs and lengths of string
But this one thing I know:
There should never ever be
A spider in the tub.

An ant should have its sprawling hill
And scurry to and fro
A-storing all the seeds of weeds
But this one thing I know:
There should never ever be
A spider in the tub.

A fox will dig a deep down den
A shelter from the snow
And there its kits raise up in spring
But this one thing I know:
There should never ever be
A spider in the tub.

A horse should have its stall at night
To rest up after shows
With hay and grain and straw to muck
But this one thing I know:
There should never ever be
A spider in the tub.

A bird does build a woven nest
Arranging it just so
Of twigs and string and cotton yarn
But this one thing I know:
There should never ever be
A spider in the tub.

And mankind builds a hut or house
For all his stuff to stow
A palace, mansion or tipi
But this one thing I know:
There should never ever be
A spider in the tub.

About suzanawylie

Suzana Wylie is the not-very-pseudo pseudonym of Susan Wylie Wilson, because let's face it, there are lots of Susan Wilsons around, and as an author, I want readers to find ME and not the bazillions of others. I've been writing all my life - since I learned to hold a pencil anyway - and can't NOT write. Other people have to breathe to live; I have to write.
