Post-apocalyptic fun

Actually, Strike Three, my post-apocalyptic  novel, isn’t all that much fun since I devastate the planet with bombs, fallout, and the “hot virus,” but I think you’ll enjoy this poem:

My Mayan Non-post-apocalyptic Verse
by Vincent Miskell

The Mayans never said
what we said they said
or else right now
we’d all be dead
blown up into outer space
or perhaps some other heavenly place.
Our world’s still here for better or worse
but it’s certainly the end–
of my Mayan non-post-apocalyptic verse.

MREs and Desert Storm (link)

I enjoyed Linda Maye Adams’ latest Desert Storm post and the MREs list and background.  Check it out here:

Note: I used MREs as a survival food, among others, in my post-apocalyptic novel, Strike Three.
