Cape Crozier – What Pegman Saw

“Stupid geeks bothering after bloody penguins

They don’t know what’s at stake!

The world is nearing its end

And all these idiots care about is fricking penguins mating

All these useless eco-warriors care about is the nature

There are bigger things at stake

I’ll show them how it’s done.”

Troy opened his rucksack and took the book of ancient seers out. He will bring upon the apocalypse onto these undeserving morons.

He scraped the solid, unforgiving ice to form the symbols. He opened the exact page and started chanting.

“akh bert klaph ist kwan… bey usd dokh rilam jhan..”

The earth shuddered

Emily burst into his tent

“Troy, you moron! Pack the eff up. We need to leave.”

Troy just smiled

“Why are you smiling, you idiot? Mt. Terror is going to erupt. It’s time to haul ass.”

“I don’t think it’s global warming Em, we brought it upon ourselves”

Note: This piece of fiction is written in response to What Pegman Saw

    1. Troy might be right or he might be having delusions of righteousness. But, the bigger question here is how far are we from such calamities because of our callous attitude towards nature? Thanks for the comment, Neel. Appreciate it. Cheers, Varad


  1. More or less what I wrote about as well, but if Mount Terror did erupt, and the eruption were large enough, it might bring about a “nuclear winter.” Even a small one would cool our planet for years if not decades.

    1. The name Mt. Terror hooks you, right? There’s another volcano, Mt Erebus, which is just 30 km away from Mt Terror and still active. But this one’s name fit the plot just right. Thanks for the comment, James. Will head over to your blog now. Cheers, Varad
