12:45 pm: Poetic Genius
Seeing as my journal is in sore need of an update...inserted is a bizarre yet hilarious poem!

"Death of a Fuzzball", Amanda Bourne

Squirrel, lying in the street
like a pancake
What was it that killed you-
Michelin, Goodyear, Bridgestone?
Or perhaps brands from Canadian Tire?
What was the make and model
of that which silenced you?
Toyota, Mazda, Cadillac, Pontiac?
A domestic car?
or an import?
As I drive by you, I think these things
and feel remorse
You lay there, a testament to all squirrels
with the hopes that one day you can run
across the highway
free and safe.
