The air is clear, but then is white.
A beautiful whisp in a frozen sky.
As gone as quick as it was made be.
A wonderful thing it is to be free.

A sound, a noise, a glimpse of fate.
Aproacing at speed, with no love or hate.
A monster of steel, no emotion to show.
A streak of white light that leaves scars in the snow.
As the scars get deeper and the enemy aproaches.
My consious starts reeling with fear most abundant.
A impact, a pain, flying up through the air.

White, red, black, the order goes.

A mother, a daughter, left in tears.
A puddle, a resting place, no more fears.
Heartless, Souless, again and again.
The monsters keep coming to carry out their sin.
A splatter, another, as all goes black.
A consiousness fading in the silver night.
A family weeps as it will for years.
A sheilding of eyes as come more tears.
A scream wreakes the night as a body flows.
Disrespected, forgotten, all alone.
Once a model now a empty shunned soul.

Where went the beauty and where went the grace?
They lay there hidden, in half of a face.
A empty stare, a blood red moon.
Mark another night in a timeless doom.

So you have two and I have four?
Yet I have less and you have more.
So I have four and you have two?
Is forgetting me the right thing to do?
Ask yourself this as I fly away.
Free at last from a tortured stay.

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]
