Living Dead Dolls Series 10
Date of death: 1603 B.C.
The itsy bitsy spider, crawled into a fresh dug grave.
Found its way into a coffin and a home in a corpse it made.
The ghoul arose from the dead and made the spider her pet,
So the itsy bitsy spider is glad of the friend she met.
Arachne was gifted in the art of weaving,
But one look from her can be deceiving.
She hung herself from a web,
And fooled others into thinking she was dead.
And now masters in the art of disbelieving
- Her deathdate is the oldest by far.
- In Greek mythology, Arachne suffered the consequences of the Goddess Athena when she beat her in a weaving contest and was turned into a spider as a punishment for her hubris.
