Carcass

Road kill spotted by the way;
Deceased, a carcass rots away.

Pull the pickup to the side,
Grab a stick to poke inside.

Identify the flesh de-boned;
Coyote skull a canine owned.

An animal that hunts in teams,
Tearing teeth in sunshine gleams.

Detach the body from the skull
With hacking knife and steady pull.

An incident of man and beast,
A car and feral dog deceased.

Exhumed he was from where he rolled,
A treasure dug from mud and mould.
