I am the spider

That “sat down beside her,

And frightened Miss Muffet away.”

It just isn’t so!

Would you like to know

What really transpired that day?

It’s true I was there,

But I sure didn’t scare

Miss Muffet, though that’s what she said.

I have been framed!

Untruthfully blamed!

I witnessed what happened instead:

Little Miss Muffet

Sat on a tuffet

And stared at her curds and whey…

Then with a dash,

Threw it all in the trash,

And ran to the nearest buffet!

I needed to pick a poem for school and his fit perfectly! Amazing!

I've been reading poems all morning trying to find just the right one. I've read poems by famous people, the best 100 poems, funny poems, sad poems and I didn't like any of them. I found your page and started reading and I love every poem I have read so far. What's up with that? I'm sorry I have never heard of you before. Are you a famous poet? If not you should be.
