Heart

Of Herpatophobia

Hadn’t all of you left my abode after the spell that winter was

Was elated in not seeing you crawling over the walls.

 

As I entered my heaven this evening, you registered yourselves

In the drawing room, in the kitchen!

 

Can’t you understand, you make life and living alien to me

I can barely breathe, barely sleep.

Find greener pastures you wretched souls!

 

Leave the human in me at peace,

Please!
