Goddamn Roaches

Goddamn Roaches

A Poem by Baby Ricochet




        I killed ten thousand roaches
        There were thousands more
         There must be a secret lair
             I haven't seen before

       They crawl across the ceiling
           From out of little holes
     They baptize all their off spring
       in my dumb cat's water bowl

     They move around my furniture
         in the middle of the night
          All my s**t is rearranged
      You know that just ain't right

   They have turf wars in the kitchen
        The pots and pans they fly
     They car jacked a Verizon Van
         They rob all passers by

       I use every spray imaginable
          Banned FDA pesticides
        A secret unstable formula
      Made from old formaldehyde

    I went flame thrower on their asses
   Constructed from a lighter and spray
      I incinerated many thousands
       and still they won't go away

       This war is unconditional
       The outcome is unknown
        Next I'm going Kamikazi
      Strappin on predator drone

Thank you em10
I found this especially amusing! I have not comments other than: "well done". Normally I am against comments that aren't constructive, but I could find nothing wrong with this poem

Thanks man
i worked for terminix for three years and hated dealing with roaches....they are persistent. if you live in an apt bldg you have to get everyone in the apartment to get treated or they will just go back and forth depending on who gets sprayed.....never getting rid of them. this is a very entertaining poem, and you have added much personal humor. i hope you dont really have roaches this bad...coz you got a long , expensive road ahead if you do....

good luck, try malathion or dursban, but you gotta be persistent!!!!!
Those roaches are hard to kill. I was raised in the old buildings of Detroit. If you spray your apartment they would move to another. Almost impossible to be rid of. I like the poem. The roaches could drive you mad. Thank you for the excellent poem.

No, they just reproduce by the millions
We saw a roach in our house one time and my mom FLIPPED OUT, I've never seen someone so afraid of bugs before... this was hilarious!
