Roaches and slugs are my least favorite bugs.
They creep through sludgy grime, and appear at awful times,
Like when it is dark or after a heavy rain.
The roach moves quite quickly, and the slug barely at all. But
Regardless of their speed, they are both a fright to befall.
When I see them I am disgusted, and I wish to stomp them flat dead.
Yet I know that I would hate the feel of squishy guts weighing upon my head.
If I had it my way, they would not even exist.
And then there would be two less bugs on my least favorite bugs list.
