Today should be proclaimed. I believe at least 6 earthquakes around the world (latest Ukraine-Russia) and a volcano in the relatively non-resilient (147 out of 165, I immediately mused who calculates such calamity and how do we reduce such facts to mere figures?) Japan–and you see the earth convulsing & you hear the blade whirring and the noise becomes incompatible until: silence.
The unknown returns as blight among the land. ‘If you can control a population…’ the whiney alien expert hails from the muffled speakers, a trap no doubt of smart technology too stupid to keep up with the forgotten ones.
And those shall be the ones who must rise.
