I didn’t ask for a roommate, but I have one.
Why choose me?
Was it something I did, or didn’t do?
Where’s his share of the rent?
So far he’s here with arms tucked in,
Haven’t seen one red cent!
Why is he here?
What does he want?
To pillage and rape my resources?
I’m afraid he will attack when I fall asleep.
I sleep fitfully.
I’m watching and waiting for him to climb my walls,
Break down my barriers.
Scared to fall asleep lest he begin nibbling my toes.
No trap can hold him at bay.
I know he’s watching me,
Hiding in dark corners.
Maybe it’s time for me to leave, instead of forcing him out.
Time to consolidate and get my affairs in order.
Time for a new beginning…
