Cockroach

© Ian Mole

I think that there are very few creatures that I don't like but I'm afraid I find it hard to get warm feelings about the cockroach.

Cockroach

A nightmare of legs and feelers,
scuttling on marble
with your deathly click.
Most unwelcome house-guest,
reveling in filth and grease
something in your presence
almost makes me sick.
Hideously alien,
haunting drains and catafalques,
dying on the bathroom-floor
– please make it quick.
