Centipede Dismay -TROCHEE

Centipede so tiny crawls
trekking on a fence
hundred legs, he never falls
I watch in suspense…

My two feet are bad, you see,
pain comes when I walk.
Should I be a centipede,
you would hear me squawk!

Considering the Centipede

Please don't think it odd if I intercede
On behalf of the poor lowly centipede.
Though he does get the blues
When he has to buy shoes,
He's better off than his cousin, the millipede.

Latin, hundred feet. But who’s counting?
The amber-colored ones attract the eye
that is always looking for the beautiful.
They move with the undulation of a wave.
And when encountered by surprise – where least
expected – they cause a scare as deadly 
as any, sending the old ticker flopping about 
like a fish out of water and have you holding 
your breath long and tight. I felt one crawling 
up my leg in bed one night, its length too long 
not to startle me from a sound sleep, too long 
to keep me indecisive. Leaping out of bed 
was never so spontaneous, hovering 
in mid-air, never so pure an act of faith.
