Do Cockaroaches Deserve To Live? Yes.

I just moved into a new crib. It's a dope crib but it's got critters. Not a crazy amount though. I see about 2 or a day, but some days I don't see any but other days I see 5. At any rate, as a byproduct of my new philosophy I don't really feel comfortable taking the life of any creature. When I was a kid I used to just sit in the living room in the dark for like a half hour then go turn the kitchen light on and then just massacre as many as I could. Then I'd chill for another half hour and do it again. Such was my vendetta against these creatures. However these days I just catch them in a self made contraption and then free em when I throw out the trash, or maybe throw them out of the window. As I was transforming from the old me into the new me I still used to kill bugs in my house 'cause I was like "i'm only killing them because they're trespassers. If they were just chilling I'd leave them alone but I can't have them impeding on my personal space." But then it's occured to me that these cats are just running around where ever they're born, just like us, and if it was up to them they'd live someplace much nicer too, just like us. Anyway, what do ya'll think? Kill em or redirect em?

You have got to be one of the most clever cats I've ever encoutered. Refreshing.

Oh. Well, first and foremost congratulations on the new crib. In regards to the whole killing creatures, I am a firm advocate of the the protection of animals. I can play with snakes, mice, whatever. But there is just something about roaches that skeeves me out. Even so, after taking your perspective under careful consideration, I'll say redirect them. Or hire an exterminator so the guilt of killing one or two or five of God's creature on any given day can be on his conscience.

Perhaps it is your responsibility to kill the roaches. We have to keep the balance and the structure that exists in nature, imagine if no one killed roaches, they would take over your life. Anyways, your music is amazing. I wish I could come up with clever rhymes like that. There is a certain quality to your music that barely exists anymore. Come play at Tufts University. Peace in the Middle East.

I say kill 'em all. All they do is eat, s%$#t, and make babies. Then the whole process starts all over again.You can't wipe them out completely because they've been here for millions and millions of years, but you can try to hold down your own!

I say teach them that tresspassing is unethical, dishonest and illegal. Then let them go. Then hope for the best...
