Husbands

Husband roach
Sudden summer infestation.Tiny little roaches everywhere.Tears in my eyes.
Forgot all about their status as divine creatures.Smashing and exterminating, I went.
Evening crisis. Found a live one in my bed!
Morning crisis.Found a dead one in my bed!
Horror!
At once I thought, how ungratefulNo live man up to the job.And you, tiny little insect took to the enormous task,And lost your life overwhelmed by the size of your belle.
You died trying, courageous hero.Facing an impossible love affair,Unrequited love,You moved boldly in a doomed attempt.
So loved me, that you gave your life.Thank you.
Condolences to the widow.
