A Fight With Cockroach - Poem by S.D. TIWARI

Mona was laid on her bed
There crept on her leg
Who did there approach?
Oh, it was a big cockroach
She switched on the light
Cockroach didn’t like bright
Soon it ran away to dark
Mona jumped like a shark
Roach had to seek its defense
Wanted to run behind the fence
Mona threw on it, her cap
Roach quickly escaped
Mona then threw her cushion
Roach ran away to the kitchen
She attacked with a knife
Roach could still survive
With a tweezers she chased
Roach pierced into a crack
She took out vacuum cleaner
Roach crawled further inner
Half an hour was passed
The battle could not last
Profusely, she sweated
Considered herself, defeated
Ultimately, Mona got tired
She went to bed to retire
But could not sleep, sound
Intermittently looked around
She was very much tensed
Apprehensive of her defense
She spent the night in panic
Enemy may not create tragic

    I like it too,
    from my position of power,
    from where I resort to a spray
    from which it can't get away
    and gets very sick
    and dies on its back
    leaving me in bed on mine
    free of panic
    and sleeping fine. (Report) Reply
