Life's Interruptions - Poem by Dorothy (Alves) Holmes

Oh dear!
There's a dead deer
On the side of the road
That had darted out and
Demolished a car,
The driver is dead...

A deer with its pretty white tail and
Closed eyes frozen in winter's grasp.
I turn my head as I speed by
Wondering for which should I cry,
Man or deer?
My heart screams, BOTH!
