Itsy bitsy spider: an analysis
Down came the rain, and washed the spider out.
Out came the sun, and dried up all the rain,
and itsy bitsy spider went up the spout again.
The Spider symbolises the proletariat and the ongoing struggle against the bourgeoisie.
The Spout is the myth of equality. The Spider continues to doggedly scale it's heights, only to be denied the fruits of his labours.
The Rain is the bourgeoisie, impeding the progress of the Spider, standing between him and his ultimate goal of true freedom and equality. The Rain also embodies man's inhumanity to man.
The Sun is the easing of difficult working and living conditions. It provides false hope for the Spider, prolonging his struggle.
