Dark QueenRiddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
The queen of death; she crawls on your stairs,
She's always so lonely, no mate in her lair.
Her children, they leave home with such haste
For fear that their blood this new mother will taste.
On silken cord, her daughters await,
For men in their homes meet a similar fate.
Dark as new moon, her crimson belly tells time,
Her mate is passed on, he won't tell of her crime.
If you see the black maiden, you must run in fear
One prick from her needles and pain is quite near.
HintRemember Miss Muffet, what gave her a scare,
Except bitten by this harmful lady, you'd need hospital care.
AnswerA black widow spider.
Often found under stairs, in garages and other dark places.
She searches for a mate, and then kills him to provide sustenance until her children are born.
Her children leave her, because black widow spiders tend to eat anything, including their offspring.
Her poison is not generally fatal but is very painful and requires hospital care.
