Cockroaches and rats

Cockroaches and rats all over;
They have invaded you,
What are you doing about it?
Look at them climbing
On you;
They are hungry creatures
Hunting for verbal food;
Do you ignore them,
Or wipe them off
With insecticide?
Idle creatures with no knowledge
Of how to use their time
They are out to tear you down;
To pull you down;
But they remain cockroaches
And rats.

This poem is talking about the idle people around us who spend precious time talking about others, trying to tear others down. They do nothing worthwhile but take delight in criticizing the people who are doing their best to do things.
