Spiders Use Your Toothbrush.

Don’t let your toothbrush

lay on its side,

head down

in despair

as it thinks lonely thoughts till

you dare tackle the plaque once again;

at night,

when you are sleeping,

thinking happy thoughts.


big and hairy generals

of the eight legged kind,

 are happy to

use the bristles

in an effort

to ease the pain

and discomfort

from the spider like piles.
