      Death throes in the hedgerows
      Bones beneath the grass
      Flesh and fur and gravel mix as giant cars crush past
      Insects on the windscreen
      Feathers on the grill
      Skulls along the bumpers
      Red Coatings to the Sills

      Of Squashed things......

      Airborne fowl make fatal flights
      Rodents fatal runs
      Slugs make fatal slithers
      To a cliff edge one by one
      All share one long grey graveyard
      One hallowed stretch of ground
      That countless fours of phantom paws
      Plod Around

      Squashed things...
      Squashed things on the road

      Driving is so tedious
      Turn the radio on
      Switch the heater up full blast
      Speed along
      Cocooned in a cosy corner
      At the wheel on the right in the front
      gliding along in perfect comfort...
      ....What's that bump?

      Fox to rook, slug to deer
      Can to hedgehog
      All just smears of....
