I feel like a spider

Trapped in the bath

Scurrying back and forth

Trying to escape

By climbing the walls

But they are too steep

Too smooth

There is nothing to hold

To pull myself up on

So I keep sliding back down

And I am tired

To try again

If only I could fly

How I long for someone

To help me

To pick me and set me free

But that is no longer

The nature of humans

I know, instead

That they will look down on me

Treat me with disgust

Tread on me

Squash me underfoot

Or drown me

Flush me away

Because to them I am nothing
