I killed a cockroach today
while it’s trying to escape.
At the bottom of a drinking glass
where it should have stayed put.
It kept trying to craw out,
so I forgot it’s inside out.
I crushed its skull & other places
because I don’t want it in the house.
It’s a brave little bug,
though it ended up squashed.
I’m sorry we were not friends,
come back, be my enemy instead.
