The Ages of Monsters

howmassextin
Eons ago
dinosaurs ruled the world
Roaring, intimidating, fierce
Survival of the fittest
Their reptilian brains
impervious to all but the smallest flickers of love

And then a blazing fireball
exploded into the fortress of their kingdom

Monsters have
hardened scales
razor-sharp teeth relentless in
tearing through unprotected flesh
and re-shaping logic
a signature absence of empathy
They will not sacrifice their self-interests for anyone
And oh, how they can bellow!

Systematically
group by group
they eliminate the weak
the undesirable
those who would call upon their hearts to expand
anyone they could conceive to be a threat
to their polished architectural designs

And what will be waiting to ignite the sky
when monsters once again
overtake the Earth?
