Barking Spiders At My Party (Children)

Hush now, barking spiders,
please don’t make a sound.
I’m at my birthday party.
I don’t need you guys around.

All my friends are here.
It’s important that you know
you didn’t get invited
so I wish that you’d just go.

I’m wearing all my birthday stuff,
shirt, pants and my new sandals.
If you won’t go, then please hush up
when I blow out my candles.

Yes, C.J....this is definitely a ten...and even more if I could make it so...you write with such a kindred spirit...it is SO GOOD to see your stuff back here...you are such a terrific poet... Just me, Lare
CJ, So glad to see another spiders poem. We have a lady here at work who didn't know what was a Barking Spider. Copied all your BS poems to show her. I just love them Rusty
