SUN SPIDER The great sun shone again this morning Making a mockery of all my dreams Revealing them as tinfoil flimsy in his light Give them all up, he said And look at me I toil not, but I spin A most seductive web Sucking you in to pool of energy That is not yours nor mine You can share it if you really want But first Give it all up, he said What's left to give But memory You have my body and my speech So please accept my mind Giftwrapped for Christmas
