Spiders and Flies

Caught up in the old firm line
Hopeless struggles the fly.
And here too dead hang by design
Souls departed and blood sucked dry.
Enter keepers of the web
Tying heavy struggling shapes
Hoping to prolong life’s ebb
Entwining wings to bar escapes.
Carcass now hung by dangling thread
A trophy for the captors’ slake
Ruined and drained the fly is dead
Realizing too late the great mistake.

One to this insect may relate
The Bogle and Gates* associate.

*One of the premiere full service law firms in Seattle before it went under in the 1990's
