DD Death Door

Grim reaper assistant accidentally opens a door of death.

“What have you done?”

“Boss, apologies. This is a mistake”

“My work load is going to pile up with dead souls”

“So a new catastrophe? this door is gonna be interesting”

“Interesting? seriously?” sighed Grim Reaper “The game between life and death is what makes earth interesting – it can be closed, IF human worked together”

“Are they powerful than us?”

“Not really, but they are, we create catastrophe, they create peace”

“Just one catastrophe, right?”

“One? enough to wipe 50% of human population. Catastrophe Begins 2019, Ends Unknown, COVID”

  1. 50% might be a long term figure- or in a figurative sense it could be 100%.
    Coz the life that we knew before March 2020 does not exists. and mathematically (it sounds a bit crazy may be) it means it is non-existent or something like something divided by zero.

    Now even with two vaccines, one has to wear masks and keep following protocols- God knows till when.

  2. Our immune is getting stronger my friend, Most of the old age death is due to lung injection, human race is on its way to a stronger immune, stronger lungs, that means longer life. Or maybe this could be vice versa, anything could happen, for now let’s hope it will not end that bad.❀️
