Senryu 1


       Squirrel roadkill
       flattened by unheeding wheels
       No! He escaped!!




A note to readers: The squirrel escaped and wasn't flattened into roadkill. My apologies for my lack of clarity.

    Well... I guess I wasn't as clear as I should have been. The squirrel escaped, and wasn't flattened. I'm going to add a note to that effect. Jack

    Escaped? LOL! You're so cruel... most people feel bad when that happens... it seems to be a great pastime in your book. Unexpected, coming from you! Good one...

    I've had it happen many times, an unavoidable squirrelicide, only to see it run from under my car to freedom - he escaped! Oh no... I feel guilty for weeks afterwards.
