I killed a mouse,
My sister laid the trap.
It got stuck,
And I threw it out.
I killed a super size cockroach bug too.
It was at least three inches long,
Two or more inches wide with wings.
That’s right it could fly.
I knew right then that it had to die.
I ask myself why?
I killed a super size cockroach bug.
Lately I’ve been trying to do,
All life is sacred.
But that cockroach and mouse had to die.
If they were a butterfly,
I would had gently captured it,
And released it outside.
But they had to die.
The next time I’ll try to pretend they are butterflies.
I killed a mouse.
