Centipede Scare

A centipede found its way into our home
My hairs stood on end for hours on end! 

And while we tried learning about it on Google search, 
in a dark and damp crevice it made its perch

All the cyber net did was to amplify my fears
It also yielded that our azure electric-blue vermin
was quite hot on the market
Making me wonder how people could fancy
such a nightmarish pet! 

For this wasn't just any pest
This had hazardous venom
I fearfully wondered if they had
its antidote serum.

We couldn't just ignore
a pair of painful pincers on the loose
There wasn't way to rope those
like bull horns in a noose.

Here was a venomous predator
complete with stinging apparatus
Its bite portended pain
and complications humongous! 

It did appear to have those rumoured hundred segments
but count scaredy me out from counting those myriad ligaments.

This insectivore when we tried then to shoo, 
with lightning speed it zig-zagged out of view! 

So now it lurks but we can't find it anywhere
and gosh its stingers triple their size in my nightmare! 
besides leaving us with a proliferation scare.! 

And but timid me thanked God once again
to my great relief how thoughtful of Him indeed
to create venomous creatures that inflict stinging pain
but atleast are unable to zoom in flying at us at flying speed! .

(a flyin scorpion, centipede  wud have been far more terrifyin n dangerous eh) .

    A stunning piece dear S. Zeynub of a rare quality as the subject matter is no more than a centipede,as these creatures are capable to harm as their counterparts on earth. I confess,though a bit strange as a muse,you captured the essence of witnessing this venomous creature.

    Centipede ?creature or human,they all sting using their venom or their words! You should thank God for this creation which was a source of inspiration to produce such good poetry about a bad thing like a centipede. your words act as andidot serum;so dont worry

    Enjoyed your journey with this creature with so many legs. I seen them before but never bother to research. I didn't know they were venomous, a 7 hugs

    It's strange how we are terrified of things that are much smaller than us. I see those centipedes often and they always make me jump! ...A great poem here. Very interesting and entertaining!

    I have had encounters with these creatures too. Amazing how fast and how quickly they can change directions. You have educated me on many things I didn't know. Thank you for sharing, my friend. Elaine

    I loved how you vilified the centipede by calling it an insectivore which is a word that makes it feel scary and harry as this was, it made fore a very fun read.! ~Jan

    A perfect description of the squashed centipede I saw on the road, except it was 2D.
