#97 - In His Shade

The Norway Maple stands for 50 years,
surviving hurricanes, zombiegeddon,
and some kind of portmanteau-based clothing craze
(skouses, jats, dungapants, etc)
before falling, winsomely,
on Colin.

Its grey smooth bark crushes his skull
like a testicle under a BMX wheel
and his heels perform a little Riverdance
before he expires.

Interestingly, Colin had just joined a dancing class
to cheer himself up after the death of his spaniel.
