A Roach, I Approach

A hilarious nonsense verse on roach by Sukanya.

With a Raid in hand I approach
Towards the scurrying brown roach.
As it scuttled past
I moved two steps back, fast.
I gulped a handful of air
Do I kill the roach, do I dare?

If I don’t, it will remain alive
It will bloom, it will thrive.
It will hide in my closet and in my pantry
It will find a partner, it will marry.
It will multiply, it will breed
Roach number will increase and exceed.
Big ones, small ones and itty bitty babies
I will live in fear and I will be going crazies.

So with the Raid and a heart very brave
I attacked that vile knave
Passion raging and aroused
I sprayed the roach and it I doused
It ran here, there and helter-skelter
Little roachie was in the open, had no shelter
It flipped on its back, its legs flailing
Soon enough it was ill and ailing.
With a deep sigh, it went all dead
The fear of roach from me fled

Bye, bye Roachie!
