Curious Roadkill

YOU SEE THE ODDEST CREATURES

Laid out on the highway
its feet in the air
I take a good look
as we pass it. No hair.

Just bumps on its back,
curled spines on its tummy;
its mouth sort-of open
its snout looking gummy

I ask my chauffeur
“What creature is that?”
He says with a chuckle,
“A dead rubber rat.”

    1. The length of this strip, laid out, must have been the full circle of the tire. We didn’t examine it closely, though. 😉
      It was a day for roadkill; a little farther on we passed a squashed skunk at the roadside — discernible in several ways. 😦
