Death Of A Cockroach Analysis

Author: poem of Robert Service Type: poem Views: 2

Sponsored Links

I opened wide the bath-room door,

And all at once switched on the light,

When moving swift across the floor

I saw a streak of ebon bright:

Then quick, with slipper in my hand,

Before it could escape,--I slammed.

I missed it once, I missed it twice,

But got it ere it gained its lair.

I fear my words were far from nice,

Though d----s with me are rather rare:

Then lo! I thought that dying roach

Regarded me with some reproach.

Said I: "Don't think I grudge you breath;

I hate to spill your greenish gore,

But why did you invite your death

By straying on my bath-room floor?"

"It is because," said he (or she),

"Adventure is my destiny.

"By evolution I was planned,

And marvellously made as you;

And I am led to understand

The selfsame God conceived us two:

Sire, though the coup de grâce you give,

Even a roach has right to live."

Said I: "Of course you have a right,--

But not to blot my bath-room floor.

Yet though with slipper I may smite,

Your doom I morally deplore . . .

From cellar gloom to stellar space

Let bards and beetles have their place.

Yeah, I think the producers of these games need to stop priomsing us unique endings based off of our choices until they're actually going to deliver them.I like a surprise ending as well as the inevitable one, as long as the surprise ending isn't something phoned in, or a last-ditch effort to include a twist. If it's well-done, it's great, particularly if it's satisfying. If not disappointing.Thanks for commenting!

Endings are so difficult aren't they seimtmeos a bad ending is a sign that the book or story was poorly written to begin with. If all signs don't point the reader to the only possible ending they could see then did the story succeed? Then again there is a new ebook out isn't there which completely lets the reader choose their way to an ending still I suppose their choices will have made the ending they choose inevitable..Inevitable is what endings should be. Unexpected but inevitable.My boyfriend finished playing Deus Ex yesterday and was really disappointed that even thought the game had given you LOADS of choices the ending was basically a multiple choice!I hate endings which just try to shock the audience I don't want to be shocked, I want to be satisfied!Great post!xx GnG xx x x

On the contrary it is a great loss to hmuinaty. Now more than ever the pest control business needs a more personal touch. Edward Archbold could have had a great career in this area personally consuming pests in any given household

Oh I don't know, Shaun, I reckon he's a great ctaaiddne for the next Darwin Awards: you know, the ones awarded to those who take themselves out of the gene pool through their, umm, devotion to lack of wisdom or thinking through the possible consequences.I think you were right the first time, Snoopy.
