Ode to a Bird

Oh little brown bird! You died too young..
I'm sorry you were caught by the furry black cat! I'm sorry he bit you and made you bleed. I'm sorry he broke your wing. I'm sorry he presented you to me as a gift, dropping you on the cold tiled floor before my feet this afternoon. I'm sorry I couldn't make you better. I'm sorry you were scared and in pain. And I'm sorry I had to chop off your head with a hammer a chisel to end your suffering... Please rest in peace in the backyard.

You hurt two animals in this story. Your cat was actually expecting you, as his/her master to eat half it's prey. You probably disapointed it wholly when you simply cut it's head off with a chisel and hammer and threw it away.
