Published by Jane Gilgun
In this poem, I tell the story of a badger I hit with my car when it scuttled across the Glenfarne Road. it hit so hard it broke the grill. Surely it was dead or close to death. I used a piece of the grill to push the badger to the side of the road so it wouldn't be flattened by other cars. It made no move to bite me but it looked at me with a tiny yellow eye. Once it was on the grass on the side of the road, we gazed at each other. I think the badger said thank you. I thought it would never move again. Instead, it rolled itself Iupright and beat it down the side of the road, pulling itself forward with its front paws and dragging its legs behind.
