Knees

When your knees work,
life is good.
You don’t even think about
how hard it is to get around.
But when your knees are loose and creaky
and you still have to get from A to B
life is not easy.

A spider may be shrivelled,
he may be gray and brown
but he has a talent that
will always let him down.
If his knees are wonky
and he has eight of them
on his silken web he can depend.
On his silken web he can descend
and get to B before me.

How I wish I was a spider
and spun my own transport system.
I don’t envy him his diet though.
Flies are bad for indigestion.
