Road Kill

Death failed to show up for work one day,

the clock remained unpunched


Hospital’s waiting, graveyards on call,

all coroner’s out to lunch


Death took a holiday without checking in,

the pecking order stunned


Like a deer on the highway, all headlights turned off

—awaiting what’s to come
