Black Widow

August 8, 2008
By Justine Rogers, Lake Butler, FL

A predator in black and red,
Seduction is her game.
Pray, fools, tread carefully,
For death is her name.
Fatal is her venom,
Killing unquestionably,
It is the price that all must pay,
For she gives nothing free.
She lures the unsuspecting,
Into her lethal web.
Her bloodlust is never satisfied,
Even as she feels their lives ebb.
Black Widow, cold and cruel.
Waiting so quietly.
Victims drawn in by heaven,
Prey caught easily.
Her smile seems to promise bliss,
Their doom beckons silently.
They come expecting paradise,
But all that waits is agony.
