Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
The consequences of crossing the road at night.
"Eulogy for a Possum" by Carl DeVere
Poor Posso--you made a mistake
It came fast--you thought it would brake
You stared there transfixed--and beheld the sight
Two circles of hot blinding light.

You did not move one iota
Became one with the tires of Toyota
Now you're splat on the pavement
And your body's concavement.

But Posso, I don't mourn your losso--not me
For I own a shotgun you see
What the hell--you've saved me one shell
There'll be fruit on my persimmon tree.

And not in your gut--you sum'bitch
Some carrion will carry you to some ditch
And feast on your eyes, your tongue, and your thighs
And rave on, "For food, this is some switch"
