Within six hours of the comet tail's brief brush with Earth's mesosphere
All mammals stopped breathing and died
Except for the monotremes
Two weeks had passed since the die-off
By then the spiny anteaters had formed patrols
And fenced off their communities
As protection from the platypus gangs
Neither had much interest in firearms or pharmaceuticals
Are you still reading?

When things don't seem like they'll work out, give up!
