An Ode to Bed Bugs

Oh ye bug, with your belly fat red
What a unique creature God doth make!
Together with your limbs so thin
You make a formidable Gregor Samsa twin.

No amount of insecticides or pest control
Can cure houses of your cruel rule
Like a spy under Her Majesty's Service
You work undercover in nooks and crevice.

Poor mortals, we, revolt and fear
Until to your laws we finally adhere.
You lead an army of thousands
Like brave Leonidas, the stuff of legends.

No barrier, no obstacle too big
Bug, you continue to bug and bite
Desperate hence, I write this ode
Bug, leave me alone in my humble abode.
