Black widows in the Privey
Heather Rose Jones
From the Album, "Horse-Tamer's Daughter"

Everyone knows someone we'd be better off without
But best not mention names, for we don't know who's about
But why commit a murder and risk the fires of hell-
When black widows in the privey can do the job as well?

Now poison's good, and daggers, and arrows in the back
And if you're really desparate, you can try a front attack
But are they really worthy of the risk of being caught
When black widows in the privey need not be bribed or bought?

So if there's one of whom you wish most simply to be rid
Just wait till dark and point the way to where the widow's hid
And say to them, "I think you'll find that this one is the best"
And black widows in the privey will gladly do the rest.
