The voice on the phone was shaky,
It resounded with dread and fear.
“My hunting buddy’s dead!” he yelled,
“We just came out to hunt some deer!”

I tried to calm the caller down,
“There’s an ambulance on the way.
Just calm down until it gets there,
Try to listen to what I say.

Before we do another thing,
You must make sure that he is dead.”
“Okay, it will take a minute,”
The panic-stricken fellow said.

As I waited for his answer,
I heard a gunshot, maybe two.
And then the shaky voice was back
“Okay, and now what do I do?”
