Witnessing Road Kill

Walking down sidewalk Watching cars pass by and by Looks from side to side In dismay looks down Now hating every roadster Death smears on one tire

A gross image about the smeared tire ... but of course road kill is never pretty. Did you actually see this happen or just imagination? Something like that would stick (no pun intended) with you for a long time. Interesting poem.
