The Biological Weapons, the Kite, and the Pigeons

THE PIGEONS, terrified by the appearance of a Kite, called upon Biological Weapons to defend them. The aerosolized microbes at once consented. When the Pigeons had admitted the microbes into the cote, they found that menace made more havoc and slew a larger number of them in one day than the Kite could pounce upon in a whole year.

Avoid a disease that is worse than the disease.
