Spider Necklace

Along came a spider who sat down to nest
Settling below her neck and above, well, the rest
Dangling along, as spiders often do
That spider was content, enjoying his view!
The question becomes, how long will he sit?
gracefully swinging on the chain that she knit
Before going off and laying in a box,
Cursing the bat that now sits in HIS spot.
