Rexpocolypse by Ryan Carpus
The screams penetrate the walls.
Louder than the sounds of ruin.
I hear a scratching at the door.
??Help me please, Robert Rex!? cries a familiar voice.
That's little Christopher Rex.
In a flash I tear the door open and snatch the child up.
Safely returned to the shelter,
The image of chaos burns in my eyes.
??Rexina, I can't let them all die!?
??But you said that you'd never let go!?
??I'll come back, I promise you that,
But we can fit a few more, I need to take this chance.?
??Just give me this one last embrace.?
??It's not the end, I'm coming back.?
But Robert never did come back.
