Death of an opera star


Ode to Odocoileus virginianus
A pair
Wandering
Wondering
Which way to greener grasses?
Are brighter flowers around the bend?
Struck down
Eviscerated
Emasculated
And thrown
With child sent tumbling
Before ever tasting sunlight
Casualties of a dark night
And cruise control

Oh, bummer.

*sigh*

I hope you at least harvested the deer.

Oh, no! I'm terrified of hitting deer. Did it once, but was barely crawling by the time of the impact, so no problems on my end--can't vouch for the deer, though.
