The summer sky was all blue and clear
And the morning breeze whispered in my ears

Of distant lands unknown,
To cherish, love and behold.
Life had never seemed to be so much fun
As if a well choreographed dance

Few birds sat twittering in their nests,
Nurturing the young ones with love intense
The forest had suddenly come alive
Full of vigor, spirit and melodious sights

All of a sudden two sounds were heard-
While the first came a raging gun,
The latter, from the dead bird’s silent fall

The killer beast looked like you and me,
Can you see one within thee ?
