Fast food killed us… hippies will finish us off
Some say it was in the high fructose corn syrup. Others say it was in the trans-fat, or homogenized whatever.
But it was the meat that killed us.
All I know is when people started dying, I barely noticed. I was too busy scraping for food, finding coke cans for change.
I hadn’t really eaten in two days… just some molded corn nuts to suck on.
Death fell everywhere.
Whenever the silence started getting to me, I rode my bike as far as I could everyday and holed up at night, aiming for parks.
When I found survivors it was sudden. A group of partially hidden people sat around a fire, swaying to the rhythm of a slow humming song led by a man wearing nothing but stringed acorns.
“Welcome sister”, a voice behind me whispered.
The group at the fire turned silently.
“Welcome to the New Age”, they singsonged.
“Those that past have died for their sins of eating our fellow animals.”
“Those that remain will start a new cycle of love and rebirth, living in peace and harmony with all animal-kind”
“Hippies!”, I cried as I turned and ran.
“God save us from Hippies!”
