I think that I may never see
a horrifying sight like thee
as you run across the road to meet
the tires coming down the street.
I never again want to smell
the emanation of your farewell
that permeates the air around
and clings to tires, steel and ground.
I’m sorry little skunky friend
for being the means to your smelly end
I never meant to cause you harm
I wish you’d worn a skunk alarm.
Your memory will stay with me
for days on end I’m sure you’ll see
Somewhere above is a stinky new star
who left his last under my car.
About this post: Last night a little skunk ran right under the car as we were driving down the road. We tried not to hit it and we don’t know for sure if we did ( I wasn’t going to get out and look) but he hit us for sure. Skunk smell really does stick to everything.
