Day 309 – Hapless Humans

Careful not to turn your hapless humans
into villains; it’s much too easy
to let them take the countless lashes
you’d never give yourself,
too easy to make them tall
in all your stories,
too easy to string them up,
too easy to set your sights
on defeating the same
defeated monster
every night.
