No Reason At All

I saw a spider walk across the floor
a flawless victory of evolution
she was murdered by irrational fear
in the form of a stomping foot

I saw a raccoon mother lead her family
in a secret world unknown to us
in darkness
they move like villains in an epic novel
she was run down without remorse
as the tail lights fade

I saw a beautiful deer
majestically rise with the sun
running free with the spirit of a thousand men
assassinated by a hunters overcompensation
stolen from nature by the same
for no reason at all

I saw a young man walking
a seemingly happy pure life
his smile reflecting as much
he was gunned down by hate
murdered by an irrational fear
run down without remorse
stolen from us for no reason at all
