I sit here at the end of the world, and I must admit that I'm not
nearly as frantic as I thought I'd be. I'm waiting for the final
curtain to close now, waiting, waiting. The apocalypse has been
and gone, but I'm still here, one of the very few who are I might
I always had the feeling that it'd be nuclear war that snuffed out the
candle of humanity, that niggling foreboding feeling, the instinctive
knowledge that this is how it was all going to end up, or pop and wind
down as the case may be. Even though it only lasted a few hours,
and occurred in the northern hemisphere and the wind currents took
their own sweet time to get here I can't help but taste death on the
Not for myself though, or in grief that humanity is no more, no, these
are tears of joy that humanity won't be around to do it again. For I
know if we were we would. I don't believe that we ever deserved
this world, don't believe that we were right to bend it to our will and
try to tame nature.
Everything is so quiet now, I can't even hear the birds shrieking in
pain from the radiation that wafts through the land, lucky things that
they die so quickly. Out the window is a contradiction, a winter
landscape, bleak in that the trees are bare and skeletal but with air
shimmering in the heat of high summer. I actually find it funny
now that the radiation is finally getting to me. At least I've
got my trusty Revlon foundation to cover up the peeling sores on my
face, yes I'm quite vain, even now that only I will know how I look.
I've sabotaged humanity's last hope of survival: The Habgood Mars
projects. I've engineered a leak in the seals on the reactor in
base one, a bio plauge in bases two, three and seven and in four, five
and six there will be unexplained power failures for just long enough
to ensure total elimination of all living things. I've done this
so that humanity will never have the chance to taint earth again, and
all I have to do is press the button.
Now that I'm probably the only living thing besides cockroaches, deep
sea life and bacteria I must say that the only thing I regret is
that I'll die a virgin.
I'm feeling kinda worse now, if that's possible after vomiting for a
few hours straight, sleepy too.
I think I'll go take a lie down and press the button.
Signing off for all eternity
