September is the month of spiders:
Poised in their webs like living jewels,
Stranded in the bathtub like patient travellers
Waiting for a train on the London tube,
Hatching in their hundreds from silken bundles
Dispersing to the corners of every room.
Webs a problem? Spray them silver:
Claim they’re the latest in interior design.
Visit a therapist if you’re petrified of spiders:
September’s not a month for arachnophobes!
