A gun shot echoes through the house,
And she falls to the ground where her only friend lays,
He whimpers and yelps, his eyes shut as his life ceases.
She holds his body close.
Tears crash into bloody fur; she knows it’s not over.
A scream pierces her ears,
Her mother collapses on the ground.
She screams at Daddy to stop, but she knows it won’t help,
He runs at her and she can smell his breath,
