It is all about oil.
Oil is the remains of billions of ancient creatures transformed by the pressures under the earth. We’ve disturbed the dead. We tear them apart again and burn what’s left. Our air filled with ghosts millions of years old. Ghosts of creatures whose species are long extinct. Ghosts with only instinct and survival drive.
They howl and rage and we go crazy and dig up more. Once they’ve all been disturbed, once they’ve all been pulled up and set loose maybe they’ll go away. Maybe they’ll leave us in peace.
