Subject: Song Challenge: Surgery on a Tarantula

Let us raise our voices in song, on this creepy subject!

SPRINGFIELD, Missouri (AP) -- Felicia Daniels wants
to be a veterinarian when she grows up. She's off to
a good start.

When the pet tarantula in Felicia's eighth-grade
classroom took a tumble and cracked its abdomen,
the students reassembled its innards, closed it up with
Super Glue and apparently saved the creature's life.

"It looked kind of gross," said Felicia, who had the task
of applying the glue. "At first I thought it was going to
make me sick. But then it looked kind of cool."

The spider, named Sir Isaac Newton, lives in an aquarium
in Carolyn Mulkey's science classroom at Study Middle
School.

Sir Isaac's brush with death occurred Thursday as
Mulkey was trying to hand the spider to student
Charity Thomas. The spider tried to make a break
for it but instead fell about 4 feet to the floor.

"I heard it," Mulkey said. "He thunked when he hit
pretty hard."

Hitting the floor cut the tarantula's abdomen open.
Student Chris Davis had a brainstorm: surgery and
Super Glue.

He and the guilt-stricken Charity, by then ready "to do
anything to save his life," donned plastic gloves and
used a Popsicle stick to push the spider's vital organs
back in place before Felicia applied the glue.

Still, there was no real hope that Sir Isaac Newton
would recover. The defenseless spider was rather
lethargic in post-op.

"I assumed I would come in this morning and he
would be dead," Mulkey said Friday. Instead, she
found a sluggish but hungry spider munching on
a mealworm.

And as famed commentator Nathaniel Harari told
The DAILY DOSE! via email, "What I want to know
is why kids are handling tarantula spiders in the
eighth grade...?"

Sir Isaac was a spider, lived in the "Show Me" State
Inside glass aquarium, in Springfield school, grade eight.

Now just like Humpty Dumpty, Sir Isaac took a fall
Tarantula cracked open; much to the dismay of all.

But unlike Humpty Dumpty, Sir Isaac's body was renewed,
When he was made whole again with the help of Super-Glue.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

I thought that it would make me sick, but it looked kind of cool
Said spider surgeon Felicia; when interviewed at school.

Sir Isaac Newton, spider,didn't climb the spout,
He fell from Mulkeys hand you see, and landed with a clout.
Out spilled his innards, all on the classroom floor,
Was this the end for Isaac, would he live no more?
Children from the eighth grade, all were wondering whether,
With a little superglue,they'd put him back together.
So with surgical popsicle stick, they restored his little belly,
But now it looks quite hideous, like custard, cream and jelly.

The Springfield Wager

Now Felicia Daniels a vet she would be,
Although she is still in eighth grade,
And when poor Sir Isaac lay broke on the ground,
A wager she instantly made.

A wager, a wager, a wager she cried,
I'll bet one dollar to your ten,
That though poor Sir Isaac lies broke on yhe ground,
I will put him together again.

She quickly assembled her medical team,
Chris Davis and Charity T,
They soon were scrubbed up, and in plastic gloves,
They began to perform surgery.

Poor Sir Isaac's insides were all outside, I fear,
It looked like the end of his life,
But she poked them back in with a popsicle stick,
And saved the tarantula's life.

A whole tube of Loctite was brought into play,
It's really quick setting you see,
It sealed up his tummy in quite a neat way,
He was groggy, but fit as a flea.

The Science Teacher thought he'd not live through the night,
She was wrong, he was there the next day,
Sat munching a mealworm with obvious delight,
And saying 'Felicia, let's play!'

FC

Never thought I'd write a song about a spider!
