“How like a prisoner be

An insect trapped

Caught in a spider web

by a hungry arachnid.

Spun chains and shackles,

no comfort to the victim

wrapped up in silk

Injected with a paralytic

Helpless, awaiting it’s fate

To be eaten, sucked dry

Till all that’s left

Is an empty shell

The sider cuts loose to fall from its web….

Prisoner or insect”
