Family Of Four

 

Family of four

dead in the road

headlights in their eyes

crushed underneath

they were too slow

the road too wide

a thud underneath

the car kept going

now run over remnants

bloody stains

the sad remains

of possums.

I like this.. I was surprised at the end. Sad, but not so bad.

Sadly, an all too frequent occurrence - the death of wild life on our roads. Here, in the UK, it happens to badgers and foxes or the
occasional rabbit. With vehicles and their headlights having been
around for many decades, you might think that a word of warning
would have been handed down in the animal world by now !
