this lifeless tot -- Florida

an innocent child,
a nineteen-month-old baby,
was senselessly shot;

cold drive-by shooter
killed a cherished little boy--
with a heartless plot

endless tears of pain--
as we remember the love
of this lifeless tot

*baby was not the intended target

    Oh my goodness, how dreadful is that, what was his motive? Did he have something against the mother, the father, or did he just randomly drive by and shoot? Thanks for sharing
