Little Spider

by Marcin Malek

Forgive me little spider
I tore your web
I'm not a monster

But you probably sense
That such things
Lies in our nature

It is true - every subject
Touched by human hand
Suddenly ends

Forgive us little spider
That at this point
Destruction is the best

On what we can afford
