Squirrel Died Today - Poem by Christina Sunrise

A squirrel died today on the street,

I tried to save him but he was already beat.

Beaten down to the ground by a car,

going fast and going far,

hitting the squirrel who was squashed on the tar,

squirrel could barely walk for he had a scar.

Please slow down,

Speeding cars kill,

killing innocent animals that

live on the hill.

Stop for birds, ducks and squirrels too,

what if that was your kid-

Wouldn’t you feel blue?

Slow, slow down for there is animals

living all around,

they want to make it to their homes.
