Or else…

I tried to kill the cockroach

but it eluded my attempt

and the search began as all else stopped,

searching high and low (but mostly low)

I found myself in the bathroom

with no bug in sight and I was desperate

knowing there was no hope of sleep

unless there was a death involved,

and that’s when it happened,

closing the door I noticed eyes on me

and inches from me was said visitor

and it made eye contact – this was the test

of good versus evil and I must prevail,

so I closed the door to isolate the threat

and my fear, and began the duel

that would define my existence

from this day forth – a test of will

and wit, and I must prevail

or I’ll never again sleep in this apartment.
