please move the deer crossing

that sign with the buck
leaping over an xing
is not a warning
for drivers to slow down

but an official
crossing zone
in our treaty
with the deer

along with hunting season
it should be honored
only there

because deer can read
and know where their crossings are

it must be true

i heard it on the radio

Inspired by this.  You really, really need to watch/listen to this.

    Perhaps, she can run for office in her area on this issue and when elected she can repeal this stupid law on her first day . Let the deer choose…what do we know. We need more people of her caliber in office.

    I for one think it high time we tell inconsiderate wildlife where they should reside and which paths they should walk. Perhaps we can enter into treaties with the Buffalo, Deer, and Moose.

    And break those as well.

    I like how the announcer is just silent for about two minutes. . . he probably has no idea what to say. I can’t say I do either.
