A man is hit by a car
People crowd around
"Quick get an ambulance"
A dozen mobile phones compete
One gets through first
The ambulance arrives
The man survives.

A fox is hit by a car
People step around
"He might have rabies"
"He might bite"
The fox is left there.
Hours pass in agony.
It dies.

"He was lucky"
they say of the man
So lucky he got 3 million
Sued the driver
Damages.

"We were lucky"
They say of the fox
"We could have got rabies"
"Pass the salt?"
