"The difficulty of literature is not to write, but to write what you mean; not to affect your reader, but to affect him precisely as you wish." ~ Robert Louis Stevenson

The common earwig frightens me,
Upon her way proceeding;
She climbs up couches silently
And scares me when I'm reading.
But most of all I hate her name,
A horrible reminder
Of places, if she ever came,
I would not want to find her.

~ Tamary Shoemaker
(From a prompt at Poetic Asides to write a poem about an animal.)
