The Crossing, Part II

PAD Challenge, Prompt #15: write a "just when you thought it was safe" poem

Just when he felt
it was safe enough
to get to the other side,
he stuck one little foot
out onto the roadway,
stretched out his
other leg, reaching
for the pavement

and –

and –

and –

The moral of the story is,
look both ways before
you cross the street.

Poor chicken.
