Samuel the Spider
(adding 1+1)

Samuel the spider,
Slipped down a spout,
We sure were surprised,
When we saw what fell out!
spider with 2 legs
1 blue leg in front,
1 black leg in back,
Only 2 long legs on Samuel,
How’s that?
Spiders have 8 legs,
That’s usually true,
But 1 + 1 long legs,
Adds up to just 2!
