I-70 was
site of a fifty car, truck
chaotic pile-up

a Canadian
man killed, multiple lives were
forever altered

nearby, elephants
disembarked their trailer and
shivered in the cold

snowy conditions
and a hell-bent hurry were
cited as causes

perfect example
of the tragedy of the
carmons - er, commons

and t'was not the sole
interstate suffering such
a horrific fate

in Michigan three
were killed in a thirty-car,
chain-reaction crash

near Cincinnati
one hundred vehicles were
tangled together

the state motto of
Indiana is "Crossroads
of America"

I keep thinking of
those massive beasts, cold, confused,
helpless to forget
