Was it a crime?

Was it a crime for the man in the silver truck to exit his vehicle to drag the wounded doe to the median?

Then leave her there.

Was it a crime to drive past her

her immobility

As she lifted her head

in pain and wonder

At all of us, terrible Samaritans

Leaving her to die alone.
