Ode to a Water Bug

Water Bug

They say you are a cockroach

You are sliding around and sneaking

Creeping and clawing with scratchy feet

Who can blame them

You eat the trash and burrow in it

You should try to work on appearances

It just looks bad when you eat the trash

Wiggling teeth-claws on your face

Munching and generally spreading crumbs

YOU are gross, water bug

But you are not a cockroach
