Creepy Crawlies

Creepy Crawlies

I think there is a great big spider living in our loo.
I was sitting in the dark and something ran across my shoe.
By the time I turned the light on it was nowhere to be seen
I hope it was just a cockroach if you get what I mean.

I moved all of the toilet rolls and checked out what was there
I found nothing but bits of fluff and rolled up bits of hair.
I thought I saw some movement from the corner of my eye
but I think it was a gekko or maybe perhaps a fly.

There are some cobwebs on the ceiling right up near the roof
They’ve been there for ages so they aren’t any proof;
that there is one still living here to drop on me at night.
Cause if that happened in the dark it would give me a fright.

Mum got the vacumn cleaner and sucked out all the grime
That used to be my chore but I don’t seem to have the time.
Now everything is spic and span but I don’t know what to do
Mum did not find the spider but we’ve now got the cleanest loo.

:) Those rolled up bits of hair had me worried. Glad you got on top of that Bob! I've been spraying few spiders myself - the shed is infested with red backs this year.

Good one, Bob.

My Nanna used to have an out house, and I was always afraid of spiders, especially when you had to fight your way through cobwebs to get to the loo.
