Lunch at Panera

Inside with warm soup.
Outside cold wind, grey skies.
Cars covered by road-salt fill the parking lots
And crowd the roads.
I enjoy my lunch and
Listen to people around me.
Glancing outside again
I see a deer.
Lifeless.
It is strapped to the top of an SUV.
I stare until traffic takes the sight away.
The bright holiday chatter continues around me.

Bambi and Panera were never going to get along.

Takes the "wonder" out of wonderland, huh?

Did it have a red nose? Was there a man in a white beard and red suit chasing the SUV?
