Jozi Gods

When the small gods arrived, I felt the hum of magic.

“Theodore,” a voice spoke. It was not a Ten Commandments voice. It was small and high, and coming from a gerbil.

“Look,” I said. “Not that I’m not impressed – ”

“Fear us!!”

“Right. Look, I know about the coup.”

“You claim to know the minds of the gods??”

“Yes,” I said. “Just give it a rest, ok? Don’t make me banish you.”

“Banish the gods??” laughed the gerbil. “We, who are humanity’s very dreams and fears??”

There was a chorus of laughter.

“We will meet again!!” the gerbil squeaked.

Then they were gone.
