亀虫
Stink bug

亀虫

目が覚めて感じたのは異変
見慣れた天井は遥か彼方
畳の目の隙間に
足を取られる始末さ

巨大になった君が現れ
嫌悪感たっぷりの顔で
僕を追い出そうと
いや殺そうとしてくる

窓枠二ミリの隙間落ち着く
室内灯が灯ると
とても楽しい気がして
羽を開いて飛んだ

テレビでは偉い人が
改革せねば日本は滅びると言ってる
性別国籍右左に別れ
対立するのが人の習性か

そんなことを古代より繰り返し
でも君ら変わらずコメを炊いてる
僕はどういうわけか虫に
亀虫になったようだ

君にこの事態を
伝える術がない
本当は知られたくないんだ
だからこの隙間で眠る

Stink bug / English translation

What I woke up and felt was something wrong
The familiar ceiling is far away
I get caught in the gap between the tatami mats

You who became huge appear
With a face full of disgust
You’re trying to get rid of me, no, you’re trying to kill me

I calm down when I’m caught in a gap of 2 mm in the window frame
When the interior light comes on
I feel very happy
I opened my wings and flew

On TV, a great person says, “If we don’t reform, Japan will perish.”
Is it a habit of the human being to conflict by gender, nationality, right and left?

Repeat such a thing from ancient times
But you are still cooking rice
I somehow became a bug
Seems to be a stink bug

There is no way to tell you this situation
I really don’t want to be known
So sleep in this crack
