This is a short poem about Roadkill. I hate how people run over animals without even trying to avoid them. Then, the body is run over again and again with no respect for the beautiful creature it is and was. Please slow down. Speeding kills.
" Everyday in the U.S., 190 million motor vehicles hit the road, and one million animals get hit by motor vehicles. That's counting cars, buses, motorbikes, and trucks, but not ATVs, snowmobiles and other off-road vehicles.
For every dead animal counted, three or four more die unnoticed. Even at 55 m.p.h., we smell the remains of far more dead skunks than we see. The walking wounded die far from the road, so only instantly killed animals are seen and get counted" -[link]
