Road Kill

by David R Spellman

Cruisin’ down the road, headed east
My mind on the driving, just the least
Darting in front, my speed I decreased
Too late it seems, my tire it creased
The critter’s life, shortened and ceased
Put me in a state, so terribly uneased
“Waste not, want not” my only release
Hurried home, avoiding the police
Arriving there, my joy greatly increased
Its still warm body, I eagerly seized
To my delight it was already greased
Into the pan, quartered and pieced
After of course, cleaned and de-fleeced
I basted and turned and roasted the beast
Adding garlic and spice, me quite the artiste
Prepared a fine meal from the newly deceased
Giving You thanks, before beginning my feast
Praying some more that it was not diseased
Meager leftovers, to the birds I bequeathed
My repast eaten and hunger appeased
Sat back in comfort, relaxed and eased
Picking some fur from between my teeth
Next time, dear Lord, I did beseech
Instead of squirrel, would ya’ consider geese?

LOL! Personally I think they're cute, and I even feed them from time to time. A friend once reacted to my telling them this by saying that squirrels are just rats with bushy tails. BTW wich wine would you recommend with squirrel??? :o)

obviously you weren't visiting Arkansas, you'd at least had a smorgasboard to choose from: armadillo, oppossum, racoon...= )

Lots of squirrel road kill here - come on over. This is very funny and I'm sure the geese appreciate it too.
