An Inquiry Into The Nature And Causes Of Cockroach Fat

In Blaberus craniifer, my theme
Today (cockroaches), fat bodies appear
As nothing so much as some well-whipped cream.
These organs do a lot; they don't just smear
The lab bench. Cockroach fat is on my mind,
Now that I've learned that roaches lard up, too,
When fed a diet that we have maligned
As bad for people. It is also true,
It would appear, that nymphs are most at risk:
A young one, poorly fed, will soon become
A listless, fatty adult with no frisk,
Slow to mature, to mate, quick to succumb
To ennui. An idea for roach control
Does then occur: just share the Fritos bowl!
