Watch out for tiny critters,

No one wants roadkill fritters…

Small but tough

When they have to be–gruff–

You know for sure they’re not quitters.


(Google image of a 50 ton diesel-electric locomotive…small enough to be a “critter.”





Up in a tree as I drive along,

I see a watchful hawk…

Looking around the busy highway

With a road-kill restaurant gawk.

He/She is the second generation of hawks

I’ve seen on this highway…

A larger one patrolled for years,

This stretch for its prey.

I recently changed my route to work

But when I go back to that way…

I see a hawk watchful for food,

That got in a vehicle’s way!
