Wild deer

Wild deer it is clear 
During daylight or night 
Pose a very real risk on the road 
An impact could kill both driver and deer
Or give both a startling fright 
To install an alarm would not do any harm
A deer whistle placed out of sight
Might even prevent this type of event 
Or steer
The deer clear 
day and night

    With your extensive animal works, I was so hoping to see a deer poem from you, Jon - I am delighted to see this! An excellent rhyme - a definite 7 :)

    I think maybe you had asked me in a previous comment if I had written any dear poems. Which inspired this poem.

    ironic as it seems, having lived in western australia,, my comment was to mirror Peter's below,,, but then i did nearly hit an EMU once,,, like your poem Jon,, a real life situation...

    It sounds like you have the same trouble with your deer's as we do our beautiful kangaroos. I hate to see them dead on our roads, so I don't drive after darkness has set in. a good read , my friend...peter

    Some people might not agree with me but I think deer whistles work to warn animals of approaching danger.
