THE BALLAD OF SPIDER FRANK

– spferdberg

Spider Frank was fast and friendly,
Speedy and sincere.
You could give him things to carry,
He would bring them here.

Cobblestone to Little Island,
Jungle Trees to Spider Town,
Homemade bread to hungry travellers,
He would never let us down.

Always keen on looking spiffy,
Saddles, Ee and Aw!
A to B right in a jiffy,
Load and heave and ho!

Then, one night, a greenish devil
Crept along the twilit farm.
Snickered mean, the ever sneaky,
As he snuck into the barn.

Spider Frank was unsuspicious,
Couldn’t hear the hissing beast.
He died in the line of duty,
Carrying the baker’s yeast.

Hitherto Old Frank had never
Met a thing as devious.
Blown to bits, he’ll be remembered
Like no donkey previous.

People say he had it coming,
That he’d been an easy prey.
Spider Frank was our dear friend,
And our friends we wish to stay.

Spider Frank was fast and friendly,
Speedy and sincere.
Mem’ries of a fallen comrade,
We will hold them dear.
