Some cockroaches were flying
On a summer’s night,
One dived straight into my food!

He travelled in agony 
With a cockroach in his pants..
He confused many and was also terrified...

There is one thing that you should know:
Intimidation is a show
Although its not large
A cockroach will charge
A little BS helps things grow...

Big Apple Birthday
When I made my birthday cake wish
A cockroach hopped onto my dish
More frisky than some
It looked rather glum
When it found the cake was not fish...

Less Courageous
There was a young lady of Dhaka,
She was cutting a Paprika;
Suddenly she saw a cockroach, 
She thought it was about to approach,
This courageous young lady of Dhaka....

Once when shopping at a grocery store
I saw a cockroach crawling on the floor;
I brought down my right shoe
And reduced it to glue -
I do not shop at that store anymore....

Premium Member Cockroach Lovers


If: you ever come across a cockroach lover, avoid them like mad
They are either so very weird or very desperately lonely and sad

Drip, drip, dripping down
The moon it shimmers
In the blood that ripples
On the ground

Pink water
In the sink
A cockroach
On the wall

Sip, sip, sipping up
The whiskey from an
Old tin cup; one last
Gulp devours all

Now lay
Back and
Go to

When impossibilities happen
Cockroach sat on heap of dung
Cock sat on the cockroach
Fox sat on the cock
Cheetah sat on the fox
Antelope sat on cheetah
King sat on slave-man
Baby came, to sit on king
“Treason, treason, treason”
Arrest, detain, interrogate”
Security guards, shouted loud

nowhere to go
I pause to my thoughts
Covered with a mist of sceptics 
Sweating in fear
Like caught in a crocodiles' mouth
Left on a cross road"with out a 
Nowhere to go 
Only the sound of silence
And the small voices of wind
An ants journey which never ends
A cockroach without a head...

"Gosh!,by heaven who is this again?"
He flew holding unto the wall as it's aid.
It leaped higher,when the light i on again.
He retrieved as the shadow fled.
My fist strucked the wall,
To have it on the tile fall.
But the more i hunt it,
The cockroach escapes it.

Premium Member When the Last Person Dies
It's lonely at the top
so join us at the bottom
No one sticks around when you flop
At number one they won't stop calling

To your own self be true
Lie to the world
Who made sadness blue
a top will twirl and twirl

Kiss your butt goodbye
We are our own kings
When the last person dies
the cockroach will reign

The American Cockroach
An interesting fact that I read
‘Bout the cockroach (American bred)
Is how it is unique;
It can live for a week
Even if it is missing its head.

For those people who live in much dread
Of these creatures and pray they’ve all fled,
There would still be a shriek
If one, headless, would streak
Since the best kind of cockroach is dead!

My Adulterous cat
                            Meeni slept in bed with a big brown cockroach
                                  “It’s an adulatory, ", I went to broach
                                           She growled like panther
