I don't like flying insects that dive bomb me and I can't stand Cardinal spiders, big ugly things, Cardinal Wolsey was afraid of them, they invaded Hampton Court when he lived there in the 16th Century.

Insect Invasion - Haiku

Moth dances with death
Fluttering around candle flame
Burning attraction!


Daddy Longlegs flies
Through open window to light
Gets tangled in hair


Spider enters house
Large long legged Cardinal
Jackie jumps on chair
