                     IT'S  THE  END OF  THE SWAMPIAN AGE


A subnanometer layer of scorched earth spanning the Potomac Basin is all that remains of the geontological column of the Swampian Age.
After just three microeons, the shortest era in the history of deep time ground  to  a  halt  Monday, as the  great  particolored  chamelionoid  Moochisaurus rex  suddenly  devolved  and  went to  swim  with the fishes, just a decade after the  Anthopocene Epoch emerged from the primordial ooze of the social media.

In contrast to the mass extinction demarcated by
the centimeter thick global fallout  that records the Cretaceous-Tertiary (K-T) boundary asteroid impact, M.  rex  is the only political dinosaur to disappear in this postmodern extinction event. The death toll was curbed by the phenomenally short reign of the garish reptile as the top carnivore  of  the White House  Mess  during  the early  Trumpian  Era.

Moochisaurus rex  stalked the primodial fever-swamps of  the  Potomac only to expire in  a tweet storm of lethal dimensions. Fossils of this great nondescript remain elusive, but palaeontologists hope to learn more about  the creature's place in  post-Swampian  political ecology after it signs a book contract.
