Animal Kingdom 11 – Cockroach: Unpleasantness


Sri Chinmoy wrote a fascinating little compendium on the spiritual meaning of animals which was published by Agni Press in 1973. Today’s poem features the cockroach.

Cockroach: Unpleasantness

Cockroach, my cockroach,
Your unpleasantness-interference
Creates a serious problem for mankind.
Don’t you see that?
Are you so blind?
Are you really blind?
How many times have we told you that we don’t need you at all
In our restful and fruitful conference,
And in our life of pleasure-indulgence?

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
