Did God create roaches for good?
I know He could.
But was it not
A naughty plot?
Did God give us the creeps for real?
Did He not feel
That’s not the stuff
To show us love?
Did God make us to be like Him?
But, O, how grim,
When I do fret
To see His pet!
This is a minute poem with exactly 60 syllables (in 30 iambic feet) and a rhyme scheme of aabb, ccdd, eeff, as prompted by Frank in dVerse’s MTB–The Minute Poem and inspired by Genesis 1:25–26, KJV:
“And God made … every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over … every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.’”
