Last night was so traumatic
That I need somewhere to vent,
For deep inside my heart
This feeling, up is pent.

I was driving home that evening
Behind a smart car, of all things,
Admiring the method
By which Shakira sings

When I saw the telltale glint
Of two curious green eyes,
And at once I knew the smart car
Was going faster than was wise.

Out leapt the eyes, and with them
Came the body of the cat.
There was quite the explosion
With blood and all of that.

And so I’ve seen the process
Of roadkill. Such dismay!
At least I take some comfort knowing
That at least the cat’s okay.

  1. Poor smart car…
    Or did I misunderstand?
