So I missed the choose your own APOCALYPSE blogfest, but I've decided to write one anyway.
The Earth shuddered and groaned. She tried to cleanse itself with tears of rain, but the rain fell dirty. She agitated her waters, but it only stirred up more garbage. She tried to blow the filth away, but it only spread around.
The Earth had lived a very long time, but these human parasites were killing her fast.
Finally the Earth had reached her limits. It convulsed and exploded. The rains fell hard, and the wind blew hurricanes and tornados. The oceans carried its pollution to shore; lava flowed from volcanos & covered all in its path. The Earth quaked her whole body and dragged all on her surface to her furnace core where she burned all the human parasites and their spoor in a cleansing fire.
Then all was still. Mother Earth took a deep breath. Blessed peace at long last.
Soon with the help of the human fertilizer, the Earth's coat grew lush, green, and healthy.
Really, these humans were worse than fleas.
