Hidden under the bed I tremble with teddy, first Daddy falls and then Mummy

Two bullets made them sleep forever, the pools of blood I still remember

A face to the shoes one day I’ll find and retribution will then be mine

    Such a scary thing for a child to see. Would most definitely effect you forever. Although, I’m afraid the shoes might be long retired, before she fights back and has her vengeance. Happy Canafa day fin up here 🙂 🇨🇦
