Trip through shifting rubble, kicking up dust; smothering coughs.
Hungry pack of trackers, beady-eyed snipers, stalking our prey.
Angry grenades flush it out. Telescopic sights place just enough distance between us.
Aim carefully. Don’t think.
It’s only another dumb creature.
I hear the last man on Earth scream.
