The Universe News Flash
are an insignificant little
speck whose life will only add
up to a less than a millisecond in
some future person’s holographic video
log for their world history class project.
Thank you for listening to the universe’s PSA. We want you to be aware that however bleak it sounds you will be awarded a participation award for your tiny background role in your less than a millisecond. Any complaints may be lodged with us upon the arrival of this award.
Not Even Raccoons Deserve the Firing Squad!
you lead a short
and sorry life that ended
abruptly and violently in my front
yard it was very unfortunate but you and
I both know it was for the best and I cried a great deal about it.
