Poem: Beware the Webs

By: Scott Thomas Outlar


The spiders come out at night,
weaving their wicked webs
of entangled deception,
seeking to capture prey
that has been blinded
by the darkness.

This is not a complex thought.
There is not a fount of wisdom here.
Just a simple warning:
Be careful when the sun falls
and the liars ready their fangs.
