This poem gave me a visual of a hit-and-run squirrel versus automobile incident where an innocent creature fails to obey the traffic signal and is killed by a truck that then flees the scene. Special police are called out and immediately chalk out the body, put up caution tape, and take witness statements. The driver is found and convicted of squirrelslaughter and under a plea agreement serves life in prison (six years, since that’s how long a squirrel lives).
