The YFA court was filled half with leeches and half with humans. The prosecutor (leech lawyer) started his argument by stating “We leeches are not harmful; when we bite no one feels a thing...”.
But before he could finish his opening statement the inhuman human lawyer gets up from his chair and argues “why do they even have to bite humans, can’t they feed on other species?”
For which the prosecutor said “Could you please let me finish and not intervene? You humans do it every time, just like the way you intervene and pull us off from your skins and kill us, not realizing the fact that you’ll are damaging our lives but also your skin”.
The leech re-started his statement “Why can’t you people be patient, and let us suck only the bad blood out of you which we usually do. This is only good for you and us” the leech now looked at the human lawyer and said “and by the way Mr. Human FYI we feed 90% of the time on other species. And here is another piece of information - For centuries, leeches were a common tool of doctors, who believed that many diseases were the result of "imbalances" in the body that could be stabilized by releasing blood. For example, leeches were sometimes attached to veins in the temples to treat headaches. Advances in medical knowledge led doctors to abandon bloodletting and the use of leeches in the mid-nineteenth century. In recent years, however, doctors have found a new purpose for leeches--helping to restore blood circulation to grafted or severely injured tissue.”
Now the lawyer becomes defensive and asks “How should we know, if you are sucking bad blood or good blood?”
The leech for which replied in a raised voice “what difference does it make? It should not really matter, cause humans need new blood cells to be formed every now and then and with us sucking your bad or good blood you will obviously have more room for new blood to start flowing.”
“Didn’t your Biology teacher ever explain it to you?” said the leech sarcastically.
The Lawyer bowed down in shame.
And the leech continued “if you humans are really irritated with us then please do take precautions. One recommended method of removal is using a fingernail to break the seal of the oral sucker at the anterior end (the smaller, thinner end) of the leech, repeating with the posterior end, and then flicking the leech away. As the fingernail is pushed along the person's skin against the leech, the suction of sucker's seal is broken, at which point the leech should detach its jaws”
The Human Lawyer had already accepted defeat, as the leech looked at the human section of the audience assembled at the Court of YFA and said “Please O please people, have some courtesy.”
Pointing towards the leech crowd he continued “consider us as your friends, your well wishers and wish well for us, the way we do for you. Please save us and don’t squish us. Thank you”
With this the whole YFA court was overwhelmed and stood up to clap.
The judge took a moment to announce his decision, “Leeches have helped us and so should we. Friends, colleagues and fellow leeches; we humans vow to be more courteous and take all the necessary steps and precautions that help both of us to co-exist and live and love each other.”
