Arachnicide (a poem in 60 seconds)

Unknown house spider crawling through the bath...
Image via Wikipedia
    eight-legged friend
    in my shower this morn
    oh spider, dear spider
    how very forlorn
    your presence was welcome
    at the window or door
    containing the pests
    that I so abhor
    in those select places
    you’ve happily fed
    but here in the shower
    or over my bed
    are places verboten
    so it must be said
    that you’ve broken our truce
    so now you are dead
