The boy lay next to the pool, scooping
"What are you doing?" I asked
"Saving the animals," he replied
"If I don't help them they'll get sucked into the machine"

The flies flapped helplessly
trying to swim against the force
that was pulling them towards Death

Then out came the boy's mother

"Move away from the pool," she said

"But I'm helping the fly," the boy replied

"You don't have to help the insects," she said

The boy listened
