"RATS IN THE DARKNESS" serious monologue by D. M. Larson about using drones to kill people without a fair trail and the deaths of innocent bystanders.
(Mohammad is trapped in this home, using an online video feed to speak to anyone who will listen)
Please I need help. I'm trapped here and I'm being watched. I can see it out my window... Waiting. Waiting to kill me. I've seen it happen again and again. They send those things to kill us. To control us. To make us hide like rats in the darkness. And I know that one is here for me. When I try to step outside it comes for me. I can see it crave me. I can feel it's eyes upon me. I can't escape it. I'm trapped here and I am running out of food. I need someone to help me.
I'm not a terrorist! I never hurt anyone - please - you have to believe me. Someone has to listen.
Tell your government to leave me alone. Tell them to leave all of us alone. What did I do to you? What did i do to your country that you hate me so much?
Those people that hurt you are not my people. So why must you punish us all?
Why can't you forgive us?
