Spiders, spiders, everywhere,

In the dark and perhaps your hair!

Crawling beneath our beds at night,

Their jewel-black eyes reflect the light!

 

Look on the ceiling!

Is that a shape?

There’s one by the door!

We can’t escape!

 

Spindly legs upon the cover,

Scratch and scuttle; don’t let them under!

They’re on the loose; they’re on the prowl!

Oh my goodness!  I feel one now!

 

Another’s crawling down the wall!

The biggest one yet approaches!

Turn on the light—wait!  Turn it off!

They’re not spiders—they’re giant roaches!
