For Jennifer, the Spider-Woman

I’ve seen movies
And I’ve read comics

Where a boy
Acquired the strength
And the agility
Of a spider

Through being
In the wrong place
At the right time

And stumbling
Into the jaws
Of an atomic arachnid

And I’ve seen
(In real life)
A woman
Who did the same

Through willpower
And merely human might

Through great responsibility
Comes great power
