Taipei Haiku #69

Wild roach appears

Students wail like banshees

My daily headache

I don’t like cockroaches. I’m squicked out by them and I’ve never seen so many since coming to Taiwan. Yet I have the good sense to know that screaming and throwing things at a dead cockroach isn’t necessarily going to get rid of the damned thing.

Or! Maybe it’s a live one and you’re too scared to deal with it yourself! That’s fair! You know what you can do in that situation? Ask someone else to help you. Because screaming doesn’t get rid of it.

Just get a damned broom and sweep it up, for Pete’s sake. Screaming and carrying on is not cute.
