We humans, we are monstrous.

We kill spiders, moths, ants, and other minibeasts without remorse.

We shoot birds for sport. (And boars and bears and tigers and elephants and other animals, too.)

We pluck roses and tulips and other flowers just so we can smell them for a second and then we forsake them in a vase, leaving them to wither.
