Coyote Crossing - Poem by Chuck Toll

Why did the coyote cross the road?
To show the turtles and armadillos,
The cottontails and prairie dogs,
The raccoons and opposums,
The rattlesmakes and tarantulas,
The cats and prairie chickens,
The jackrabbits and antelope,
The cattle and the sheep,
The wolves and ground squirrels,
The deer and carrion-eating bugs,
And the good old boys and girls
Weaving slowly homeward
From the tavern down the road
That it could be done.
