Day 5: Too Much Information


Billy was excited.
      "Mom I saw something cool!"
He said, running into his house
       after school.

"I saw a half flattened,
       mostly squished cat,
or maybe a possum,
       or a really big rat!

"It was run down
       by a truck, or a car.
I'll show you tomorrow!
       It's not very far!

"I think it was knocked
      Right off of it's feet.
It's guts were all barfed up
      all over the street!

"It's fur was all matted,
      and covered with blood.
One of it's eyeballs
      popped out on the mud.

"Really! It was
      an incredible sight!
By the way, Mom...

       What's for dinner tonight??"
