Today on the way to church I spotted road kill on the road.
Normally I avert my eyes, pretending I do not see it, yet the human side of me nearly always HAS to look to see what it is.
First, I spotted a o'possum.
So I sang the rabbit and possum song.
Drove a little further and saw something I've never seen before: a dead robin on the road.
I thought to myself: "Poor little robin!"
I found myself singing "Who Killed Cock Robin?"
Such a sad, perplexing song.
A musical "whodunit," if you will.
Then I saw a skunk on the road.
I could have sung the little skunk song.
Instead I just held my nose!
Oh, such is the life of a person with thousands of songs in her head --
Even road kill is inspiration for music!
