The spider works without a break,
Not stopping for an instant,
Building a trap that has no bait,
She'll not waste a single minute.

She spins her web, taking care,
With designs-precision neat,
Countless days of work now spent,
On this exquisite feat.

The web now flawless is blown away,
From winds of midnight air,
Her masterpiece of countless hours
Is now no longer there.

But relentlessly again she weaves,
Probably in vain,
Swept away by Autumn winds
Just to toil her spin again.

Spider's have such awesome tasks,
Against the winds of fate,
And we know just how she feels,
Using Windows 98!

Just installed Windows 98 about 2 weeks ago and I can relate. I was so happy with 95 but couldn't access some stuff cuz I needed 98 and sometimes it's a bummer. I feel just like that poor little spider!!

I know..Toe! Been home a week and fighting to get back on so I can read, read, read. This piece is perfect, especially at this time of the year. I love the ending!
