The Adventures of Monseigneur Money Spider In The Bank

spider-2.jpg

Monseigneur Money Spider was out of cash,

So he nipped to the bank as quick as a flash.

At the cashpoint, there was an enormous queue,

So instead of waiting, above the heads of the people he flew.

At school, he’d spent some time studying bank robbery,

As an apprentice money spider in drainpipes, so he was quite slobbery.

Monseigneur Money Spider might have only been three millimetres tall,

But it didn’t stop him scaling the bank walls at all.

(He’d do anything when his bank balance was so small ! ).

Monseigneur Money Spider span a thread rather long,

He hoped that to carry his weight, it would be quite strong.

He abseiled down the front of the door,

And aimed for the letterbox, just above the floor.

Although he weighed his weight in gold,

He often got lost in the bank notes’ folds.

Being only one hundredth of a gram, he’d never break the bank …

There was only enough meat on him to spin a spidery web as he sank !

But Monseigneur Money Spider needed a hand,

In helping him to decide on which cash bag to land.

Within a minute, he was in the main vault …

Before long, he’d crawled over a million pounds,

(Everyone said it was the cashier’s fault !).

On some of the bank notes, the ink was still wet,

Which he found as he multiplied his capital net.

But even this didn’t stop Monseigneur Money Spider,

The Bank Manager’s calculating pet.
