Imagine brown-black six-legged insects making their way through your own home. “Roaches” by Peter Wild and “Nursery Rhymes for the Tender-Hearted” by Christopher Morley each form two distinct tones through their use of imagery and perspective. Wild’s tone towards roaches is taunting meanwhile Morley’s attitude is bittersweet. Wild’s message forces fear upon the audience. He leaves the readers feeling frightened and such disgust with his word choices. Whereas Morley’s easygoing nursery rhyme is the complete opposite. Morley portrays his own fear in roaches which is an example of his outlook on them.
