Why Do We Stand?

Beware!

Forgive and Forget?

So Why Should I?

Like the Spider

The spider weaves its silky web,
and patiently awaits the arrival
of the obtuse fly.

Trapped, bound, and caught in its own
folly, the fly panics and wiggles and giggles,
only to become more entangled, never again
to take to the open sky.

For the lack of a good flight plan, the fly
has become dinner to the wise old spider
once again.

The fly will always be dinner for the wise old
Spider, but humanity can avoid the web of deceit
woven by those, whose intentions are to deceive,
cheat and knock us off our feet!

So beware of those, whose silky voice weaves
a web of deceit and promises more than they
can keep. For like the spider, they await their
fly!
