Jane Jago’s Drabbles – Four Hundred and Seventy-Five

We are small, and they find us unappealing so they subject us to hurts in the name of their science. 

When we die they write it down, but care not that they have killed us.

We are pacifist at heart, and even when they kill some of us and spread us on others we do not retaliate.

But we will not help them. 

We will not chase and eat the virus that is killing their young.

Why should we?

They kill us without a thought as the virus kills them.

Some days we wonder whether or not they will survive…
