Attack Of The Roaches

I went to a friend's house just the other day. And
man, I tell you that place I would not rather stay.

The roaches are bad; they take over the place. Let me 
tell you the all happened this way.

When it was time to eat, I looked around and what the
hell! This place seemed to be loaded with a bunch of
roach motels.

So we ate our food, for more my friend begged. But
something troubled me, I felt something crawling up
my leg.

It was a cockroach! I jumped up and misbehaved. So
what else was there to do, but reach for a can of raid.

I tried to spray the thing, running after it like a 
soldier. It ran into a hole, but peaked out saying,
"This isn't over!"

I went back to the table...that episode gave me the
creeps. But heck I was hungry, so I returned to my
place to eat.

What I saw next put me in a sour mood. A roach was
giving thanks and proceeded to eat my food!

Well so much for dinner, I'll call it a night and brush
my teeth. I flicked on the light and there he was, "So
again we meet!"

"I told you this isn't over," then he flew towards my
face. I ducked and I took off running in a panic haste.

This roach seemed determined as he flew towards me. "If
I don't get you now," he said "then I'll get you while
your asleep."

"Every step step you make. Every move you make,you'll
think of only me. I'll pop up when you least expect it,
count on that, hehehe."

I confronted my friend and told him, "This house the 
roaches rule..." I went to say more, but he interrupted,
"Silence you fool!"

"Our roaches aren't that bad..." but suddenly he let out 
a scream. A roach crawled in his shorts, now he's coming
apart at the seams.

I was laughing so hard at him that I was turning blue.
Suddenly I stopped laughing, because by my ear something

It was that flying cockroach, so like a running-back I
ran. This was too much for me to take, more than I could

I ran out the house and said enough is enough. If my friend
don't want to be friends no more, then oh well, tough!"

This story was a fiction, but this truth may hurt. You see a
roach, there are more, so make a diligent search.

Don't be a victim. Please be safe and whatever you do...don't
let a bunch of no good roaches get the best of you!
