I never made it back to my cave. It had turned into a volcano. In addition to the lava and smoke, it was spewing locusts with stingers like scorpions.
The locust-scorpions had orders to attack everybody who did not sport a Symbol of God on their forehead. But they weren't supposed to kill anybody, merely torment them continuously for 5 months with their stingers. This would drive people to suicide, but every attempt would fail. Death would not come.
Not until came the cavalry of angels, 200 million strong, with orders to slay one-third of humanity.
Even then, most people did not repent. They even kept having sex. And getting drunk. And stealing from their tricks. You know how people are.
