I'm Latrodetus from Texas
looking for a mate
With my hour glass figure
i'm an interesting date
I have legs to die for
a home of finest thread
My beautiful red embelishment
will entice someone to bed
Love making out of this world
from which you wont recover
A truly fatal encounter
Your Arachnid Widow Lover.

Inspired indirectly, by the tale of a love-seeking tortoise called Dirk, and a poem by S.O. Fasrus
