– road kill confidential –

It was a massacre… on the

19th of May.

Vermin littered the road… in quite

a vicious way.

Deer split in half,

cats bleeding out,

the cars though still purr and

race all about.

The cars though still purr… what’s

that all about?

 

It was a massacre… on a

wild spring day.

If the departed spoke… what is

it they would say?

 

‘Will my young miss me?’

‘Should have crossed at the red light…’

‘Birds are so freakin’ lucky.”

‘Should have journeyed at night.’

 ‘They got me… they finally got me!’

‘Hey – watch the damn road!’

‘All I was doing was hopping…’

‘Well… guess I’m not coming home.’
