Arachnidelights (Poems of a Spider-Man): There once was a boy who was bitten

Throughout this week, in the run up to Marvel’s Spider-Man, which releases this Friday, we will be bringing you a series of poems, all in different forms. Each has been plucked from a different author, and spun into a one-week anthology called Arachnidelights (Poems of a Spider-Man). Check out Monday's and Tuesday's.

Our third author is in fact two authors. The poetry partnership of Cree P. & C. Rawly is based in Co. Limerick in Ireland. The couple have provided two poems, honouring their heritage and the influence of the Maigue poets. Interestingly enough, the two writers have very contrasting concerns – a balanced couplet, if you will.


Seeing him swing can be comical
His wayward feats anatomical 
But if he needs to pee 
During a crime-fighting spree 
Then his suit is hardly economical


I’m feeling terribly befuddled
Oh I do hope it’s suitably puddled
If it’s not I shall riot
But I’ll probably still buy it
And on Twitter my rage will be huddled
