Drabble: Scum


The martian scum’ll pay. Nobody’s clear what they’re paying for, but it must be something pretty awful if we’re heading so far to get them.

Williams, that’s the guy in the corner with the thick glasses and his nose in a book, says it’s socioeconomic something or other, that the martians couldn’t really be an actual threat to Earth, but that our culture demands a national enemy. Sounds kinda unamerican to me.

Though I do kinda wonder how we’re gonna fight a war against a few half-froze soil microbes.

Ain’t our job to think about those kinds of things.
