A sprig of hope

I stare at the tiny sapling. Perhaps the world isn’t doomed after all! I mean sure, all humanity and plant life was wiped out by that crazy fungal spore outbreak, but here’s a glimmer of hope, proof that life will always find a way. I’ll cherish it, nurture it, bring this whole planet back to life. I turn around to find a suitable pot, and when I turn back the sprig is gone. It’s been replaced by a goat that’s chewing gormlessly.

The whole planet, doomed by a stupid goat. On the bright side, at least I’ll eat well tonight!
