LAST DAYS ON PLANET EARTH - FICTION

Creep, creep, slowly we creep, wanderers in the desert, creeping along slowly as we try to find a place to sleep. Which way is up?

I continued onward, my last friend baking as a rotting corpse someplace past what once was Las Vegas, now just a memory of broken dreams and dust.

A thousands of us made our way through the Pass of Dreams, a place of no dreams, nothing to eat or drink for hundreds of miles in any direction. Really not a pass but a desert that once was used for nuclear weapon testing back in the 1950s.

Angel was alive somewhere, possibly Alaska. I received a letter from her five years ago telling me to join her there, in the Green Zone, but I couldn't leave my people in the Godless zone, no leader except a twelve year old boy named Romeo, the heir to the throne of Zion.

And here I was, the last member of my tribe sinking into the oblivion of the sands of time.

When was the last battle? 2027? I couldn't remember that far back. My memories were gone except for a few last remainders shuttled away into my data banks.

Angel and I married in front of the altar. A child, now dead, of the Disease. I was young, possibly 8 or 9, riding a bike along a broken sidewalk when the first missiles hit New York City.

And here I was, lying in the sand, my last memories of a war that was beyond senseless. I was dying. I knew it at that moment I would not see the setting of the sun.

Creep, creep, slowly we cree...

"The founding fathers of the United States ate berries, green beans, wild turkey, oysters, cornmeal cakes, apple pandowdy (pie), ice cream, beer, boiled veggies, and hard cider.  Seems pretty much what people still eat today.  I guess…"

"Are you Canadians allowed to shoot off fireworks?  My neighborhood sounds like a war zone, and good luck driving the roads, with all the fireworks debris spread across the roads.  We are kinda fanatical about our fireworks!  LOL."
