it was lying there coiled up in the shade
(stupid serpent-snakes like the sun)
I didn't do it on purpose-I didn't know what it was
until my mom screamed, then I knew my faux pas
(alas, my first roadkill)
I have to admit I wasn't sorry at all
I did not cry or sob or bawl,
(actually I laughed)
I know that you animal lovers will hate me
buy what can I say? It was a sight to see.
(I hate snakes.)
Dedicated to my mom who was in the passenger seat and who hates snakes more than I do. We had a good laugh.
