Two Dark Poems by John Ormsby

Creepy Crawler

A friend of mine who used to teach

Said some kids he just couldn’t reach

A situation made more grim

For they were learning how to swim

Meal Deal

The female spider dines alone

For reasons chilling to the bone

Perhaps more dates would turn out right

If she could curb her appetite


Biography

Mr. Ormsby states: “I grew up in Toronto and now live in Lancashire, England where I teach high school. Ever since I can remember I’ve loved dark humour and thrillers, especially those which end in a cliffhanger because they force a panicked reader like me to take over the story from that point, otherwise I don’t sleep.”
