Short Story: Earth

It was as though the Earth had set motions into reverse.

Women became a commodity for ownership, animals became meat, children became currency.

The world was dying.

The Men wanted to believe they could fix things.

Alas they could not and as children starved and women fought again the chains of suppression to regain their freedom, the Earth smiled.

The men fell first.

Then the children.

Then the women.

Alas the Earth became silent and the only sounds were the stretching and twisting of the foliage taking back the concrete jungles of man.

Survivors became the hunters and hunted, plummeted back into the dark ages, surviving on instinct and refusing to accept development in all areas in case of a re run of the past should occur.

They took shelter in the old temples and pyramids of man of in underground caves carved by a civilisation long before them.

The humans changed, evolved.

Eventually the Earth healed and new species found their way out from hiding to repopulate the planet.

History would repeat itself again, time is but an illusion of a never ending loop.
