Up in a tree as I drive along,
I see a watchful hawk…
Looking around the busy highway
With a road-kill restaurant gawk.
He/She is the second generation of hawks
I’ve seen on this highway…
A larger one patrolled for years,
This stretch for its prey.
I recently changed my route to work
But when I go back to that way…
I see a hawk watchful for food,
That got in a vehicle’s way!
