Crackers

The kids were excited to pull the crackers
Around the table on Christmas Eve.
John and Holly pulled the crackers,
Hoping for jokes and toys and tricks up their sleeve,

But instead they jumped from their chairs
Horrified as the kitchen erupted with black,
Hairy fat spiders scurrying the linoleum,
Holly blubbered behind John’s back.
