The Bloggers Prayer
Oh, Mister Spider, of the great big World Wide Web,
Can you spare me a length of your sparkling golden thread?
Some folks are really quite shy to come so near by you,
But I do need some help and don’t know what else to do.
I have been racking my brain for just the perfect choice of words,
But the feeding on my posts has just gone to the birds.
Your web is so tangled up and it is so very big,
The sites keep building up to an ever bulging fig.
The SEO and RRS feeds they confuse me so,
So Mr. Spider can you help me with my traffic flow?
Can you crawl the web all over and tweak the bits and bytes?
And take my blogging trail up to grand new heights?
Mr. Spider, you know the trails both inside and out,
You know the back links and the buss routes without a doubt
You know the smooth ways and are master of the sticky roads,
You have the key words to help with all the heavy loads,
So, Mr. Spider, can you go and fetch me a really large catch,
And make the trail so sticky that comments have time to hatch.
Please make the roads up to the door wide and easy to find,
Because you know folks can get distracted and be kind of blind,
You have the special secret to make traffic go zoom, zoom,
And it sure would cure my problem of writing to an empty room!
