Easter Eggs


The Easter spiders

Aren't dead,

They hide inside

The hollow

Of chocolate eggs,

That children

Will gobble up

Before breakfast.

The spiders

Wait in expectation,

Of building windmills

Of webs,

And tummy aches,

Inside the small

Greedy bellies.

heard of worms in apples, but spiders in chocolate eggs sounds like a whole new level of nightmare. -- however, this is very well written - I enjoyed this
