Badger Passing

I lift the dead Badger, now, off the side of the track

…. Jack watches me with curious stare

Wrapped, gently, in my arms
And quietly say to it…..
“ You’ll be okay with me.”
And set it with respect,
Down into the dark safety of the gorse and bracken

What happened to you?

…. in this unexpected place
now resting in an unexpected grave.
