I Killed A Spider

I Killed A Spider
Words and music ©2016 by Mario G. Di Sandro

I killed a spider
But it don't know
Any better
Than I do

No longer suffering
But who am I
To decide on
Such a fate

How many lifetimes
Passed before it
So unbothered
Yet so free

To cast judgement
Befalls humanity
And triggers a shift

Walk now lightly
For you will see
A world unsightly
Delivered unto thee

I killed a spider
Didn’t know it’s name
Or it’s story
Or where it came

Who gave the power
To take away
The hungry hour
Who said you may?

The smaller the action
The bigger the fate
Have we forgotten
Or is it too late?

Soon there’ll be nothing
But scraps at the gate
Clawing for something
No one to populate

Talk now, lightly
For you will hear
A world revolting
A hell amongst this Earth

Act now politely
For you will be
A slave of freedom
A soul with no dignity
