road kill

Not knowing where the street
ends and the guts begin.
Road Kill.
Lifeless bodies, no one cares.
Road Kill.
Not important enough to
clean up off the gravel.
Road Kill.
Bloody corpses, split open,
gnarly innards.
Road Kill.
Driving to school, crying,
harsh images plague the streets.
Road Kill.
Nauseating and uneasy,
ruining my mood.
Road Kill.
Road Kill.
road kill.

I keep seeing poor animals (road kill) laying dead in the street and just seems like no one realizes that creatures have life TOO! Was very upset this morning and started crying on my way to school.


animals, road kill, lifeless

I think that life is beautiful in all its grandeur. I am constantly inspired by nature, kindness, family, friends and most of all, love. Not only romantic love,but all kinds of love, in all its different and unique forms. I always feel blessed and loved. I always strive to become a better person with everything I do. Blessed is the world that keeps me smiling♥

    it is sad but sadly it is a part of nature although in a manmade way. In Australia if you head out on a long country drive you are almost certain to come across a kangaroo that has sadly become roadkill. One way to reduce urban roadkill is to keep pets secure as best as we can from the dangers of roads. My empathy and sympathy for you.

  • Oh no! A kangaroo as roadkill? That is so awful =( Thanks for the kind and consoling words.

    It makes me extremely upset, as well, desperately so. There is a wonderfully quirky film about a man who made it his life’s mission to find and bury roadkill, but he hates people and kills them. LOL This poem is great.

  • Thanks Star for your words of encouragement. And that movie sounds really cool!
