The Way the World Ends


The Way the World Ends


No body expected the world to end quite like this… because of an overpopulation of butterflies.  It would be a mass extinction by monarch.  Everyone knew about the butterfly effect.  If a single butterfly flapped its wings it could create a hurricane on the other side of the world.  Well, no one thought about the consequences of a battalion of butterflies all flapping their wings at the exact same time.   The weather was just starting to turn, the wind picking up.  How strange that this would be the way the world would end, not with a bang, but a flutter.

    1. Some deep shower thoughts.... what is the strangest/least scary apocalypse you can think of? Apparently, for me it's butterflies. 🦋

    2. Hmmmm , wasn't sure if cryptic in nature , Could be a battle of words , where one can cause a death as in an apocalypse in the heart ? But it actually reminded me of the documentary on the destruction of the Monarchs habitat and the effects would be felt world wide ...........great write , can open up a world of thoughts indeed , well done Lori

    3. Thanks Raven. I was writing literally... everyone is preparing for the zombie apocalypse but it's really those butterflies we should be worried about! (I think I saw that documentary too). But I did like the interplay on the word Monarch as well, could be a butterfly species but also a King or Queen. Seen metaphorically it could have a completely different interpretation, as you said, an apocalypse of the heart. It does make one feel butterflies.
