First Roach

  Scrambling across my basin sink

               What is it that you must think.

               Of this unnatural habitat

               We bipedal anthropomorphs live at.


               The arrogance you must perceive

               Is but our bent to self-deceive

               Ourselves and all who invade

               Our omnipotent barricade.


               Our divine right we must protect

               Lest we admit to some defect.

               You may rightly be contemptuous

               Of our small world pretentious.


               Another being will this way come -

               A specie more adventuresome.

               And in our domain it will supplant us

               After an event calamitous.        

                                                 g Tiberius
