Spider Blue

A flea caught in the spider's trap,
Pleaded with his captor that
His pardon plea would be approved.
By the flea's plea was the spider moved.

"Flea, you're part of one big plan.
You've lived before, you'll live again.
Say goodbye to pain and strife,
No need to fear the jaws that bite."

For a spider, for a mouse
For a spider, for a mouse
For a spider, for a mouse
Guests uninvited in the human's house


*This poem is a summary of the first several chapters of the ancient Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad Gita (literally, "The Song of The Divine"). If you haven't read it, read it! It's Beautiful.

**The melody and verse structure for the poem is adapted from the 'spider songs' by the musical group mewithoutYou. Have a listen!
