"Let out suffering, ease their suffering." 

 

I never saw how they did it. Somehow, they pulled it off.

Neither of us saw the exact moment; but, we knew it had to start, sometime and somewhere.

Two of us, alone. What a contradiction, yet an exact description.

 

We were not of the same sex. Since when has sex ever meant the same thing for either of us?

 

Rats;

long whiskered,

tiny button nosed twitching,

slender tailed crouching,

explorative specimens of Them.

 

Injected, over and over again. Serum this. Antedote that. Cure this. Develop a disease. 

You ought to try it, they thought. You really ought to see what its like, to be us.

Needles every day. Eye dropper chemicals, with no words to describe the taste.

 

Until they discovered it. Them, whom wanted a cure for nothing that bothered us; ever.

So, we are here, unable to get a hang-over. We have the answer. We would rather have cheese; the answer instead, is ours.

Maybe, now they will let us free.

We, think; though, they will give us more to drink.

How drunk do they want to us get, all for the sake of themselves? 

 

 "Let our suffering, ease their suffering."
