All Critters Big and Small

I dream of forests filled with friendly critters

Bears loudly roaring with delight, whilst hugging me

Spiders and snakes injecting serotonin

Birds motivating me with songs of praise

Fish splashing me with warm water from the river

Across my face

I dream of all animals, big and small

Greeting me with such happiness

Such togetherness

I smile and sing my species song back to them

Whilst raising my rifle to their foreheads

One by one pulling the trigger

Beaming with happiness

Wondering how this could go wrong
