The End of the Dinosaurs: a Shakespearean-like Tragedy, by Isaac
(Scene: Earth. Post-apocalyptic asteroid hit)
(Cast of Characters: Dinosaurs; Baby Frog)
And then, all the ones with wings started picking up the smaller, defenseless dinosaurs and taking them to safety!
Wow! That's so nice!.
But the dust was too thick (Cough! Cough!). They were choking. Then, another rock the size of (drops voice to a dramatic whisper) the whole entire Universe falls (raises voice to top volume again) CRASHING FROM THE SKY!!! KA-GUSH- BA-FOOOM!!
That sounds bad, dude.
But there was one baby dinosaur... (attempts to cram small dino into a plastic egg, but seeing it doesn't fit abandons it for a stretchy frog)...No, no! A baby FROG is left.
A baby left! Yay!
And the ash is everywhere! And the asteroid sucked away all the gravity and turned it into lava, and, and...
The baby frog hatches in the air.
Go baby frog! Way to survive!
But then, when it leaves the egg it lands right on top of the volcano and it burns up!
I think our days have evolved from Christopher Robin and Pooh to Calvin and Hobbes.
I don't know what you're talking about, Mommy, but get out of the way – the volcano is still erupting!!
