Sparrow

Ran over a dead sparrow with the lawn mower,

probably going to need a new mower.

Tossed what was left of it into the compost heap with the yard trimmings.

So the sparrow eventually ends up in my wife’s flower garden,

perhaps incarnated as a daffodil, or some such,

don’t know really know to much about what kind of flowers she grows,

but they do make the yard look nice.
