A very clumsy spider
got tangled in its web,
and a fly that saw her
began to laugh heartily,
Very angry the spider
humiliated she felt,
but the fly approached
to ask for forgiveness:
«Spider, it's not so bad,
you too would have laughed
yes flying from the sky
I would have fallen to the ground ».
The spider looked at the fly
and the disgust is over,
thinking about what happened
they both laughed at ease.
