The volcano erupted and slew the loudly weeping forest with fire. Moot was the point that the victim was a rainforest, and featured a lake. The water’s indifference to the inferno on the hill could not have been more placid.

That was, until the earthquake. The ravaged trees had their revenge against the volcano as the ground, hearing the lament of the pine forest, separated. The land bade the placid lake sacrifice itself to quench the angry heart of the volcano.

It was a three-way murder scene as volcano killed forest and lake killed volcano.

But the earth abideth forever.
