Snarky Behavior

Ode to a Gross New York Bug

Gross New York bug
How did you get stuck in my light?
Was it your time? Did you follow the light
only to discover it wasn’t the pearly gates, or the rusted chain link fence, or whatever the cockaroach conception of heaven might be?

Gross New York bug
Why do you have so many legs?
And such long antennae
that scurried desperately in the confines of my light
while you sought a way out?

Gross New York bug
I’ve read that sleeping with your mouth open
means that you inadvertently swallow bugs in the night.
Please don’t ever crawl into my mouth, and scurry about
like you did in my light.
