Bara Cailín 5: 42 ‘the by-products of Terminal Transit’

Carry on up to Stephens Green itself and the many ornamental ponds in this famous urban park that were once graced by ducks and swans and ringed by generations of families who set out to feed them are now simply silted with the by-products of Terminal Transit – corpses, broken shoes, empty prams, more corpses, crazed people who are trapped in the mud, splintered wood from ancient trees that stood tall but are now felled.

The end of the world is always a messy event and even once people no longer exist the planet is still going to be cluttered for the rest of time.
