This poem is based on an actual event, with a few added fictional details, and told from Muffin’s perspective.
My human’s safely tucked in bed,
Big spider sitting on his head.
I jumped on him, he did not know
Big spider ran, when I did so.
My human woke and looked at me,
That spider, though, he did not see.
I pointed there, high on the door,
My human screamed, fell on the floor.
I jumped on him, no time to sleep!
Big spiders we don’t want to keep!
He woke right up and grabbed his shoe,
Big spider’s gone, now what to do?
