Ode to Phidippus

Phidippus johnsoni is one of the more distinguished denizens of our yard, and occasionally house.  It is the only creature I have identified to species based on the quality of my spider-averse girlfriend's screams.  It's big, its abdomen is I'm-dangerous red, and it has iridescent chelicerae.  I thought that was deserving of a poem.  (Poetry's not my thing, but then drawing wasn't once either).
