A Possum's Tale - Poem by Bob Gibson
Driving home one moonless night
On a country road the only light
is from the headlights of my car
beams of light that reaches far
Around the bend two frozen eyes
Taken by complete surprise
A possum versus a ton of steel!
Thump, thump! now he's under the wheel
The possums heart ceases to beat
To a bird of pray he's just fresh meat
That night another possum yields
But for him i had to cross two fields!
For these creatures of the night
Its a shame they have such poor eyesight!
The light must hypnotise their brain
Either that, or they are insane!
