Spiders are friends?

Hello. I am a spider.
To you humans, I am the outsider.
I make you paranoid
Right before I am almost destroyed.

But let me tell you,
We mean no harm!
Yet, at us, you swing your shoe.
Please, don't be alarmed!

If it wasn't for us,
The world would overcome with other bugs.
Don't make such a fuss
So come here and give me a hug.

No? Alright. How impolite.
But I beg you, instead of killing me,
Why don't you put me outside on that tree?

The author's comments:
I don't like spiders, either. But this is life from a spider's perspective! So before you kill that 8-legged bastard, why don't you think about placing it outside, where it can still live happily? It's a win-win situation.
