Jim the Poet:

A Noiseless Patient Spider
BY WALT WHITMAN
A noiseless patient spider,
I mark’d where on a little promontory it stood isolated,
Mark’d how to explore the vacant vast surrounding,
It launch’d forth filament, filament, filament, out of itself,
Ever unreeling them, ever tirelessly speeding them.

And you O my soul where you stand,
Surrounded, detached, in measureless oceans of space,
Ceaselessly musing, venturing, throwing, seeking the spheres to connect them,
Till the bridge you will need be form’d, till the ductile anchor hold,
Till the gossamer thread you fling catch somewhere, O my soul.

The Spider
by Emily Dickinson

A spider sewed at night
Without a light
Upon an arc of white.
If ruff it was of dame
Or shroud of gnome,
Himself, himself inform.
Of immortality
His strategy
Was physiognomy.

Hoarding toilet paper never made any sense. Because there was never any proof of documented evidence that having covid gave anyone the runs. There were other popular items that were unnecessarily hoarded as well, I just can't remember which ones they were.

@Kpx, the toilet paper buying might have been because store hours were/could be reduced and supply chain issues?

@dale: I don't know what you thought about it, but I really like it. It had really good production quality for an extreme low budget homemade project. And the woman who portrayed Wednesday had a remarkable resemblance to Christina Ricci, she was actually shut down by the franchise owners of AF.
