The Irony of Fate
Did The Two Men From The Interlopers Get What They Deserve?
Within this dark and dreary world where we so happen to find things that stand in our way and throw a wrench into all of the plans that we have made to appease ourselves. These simple, seemingly ordinary things can turn a whole world into nothing but rubble. The worst thing about these irritating interlopers is the very fact that almost every time, without fail, they turn out to have some sinister and humorous irony about themselves.

These men would not have been in this predicament if they hadn’t been so careless in the hunt for death, so in a sense, they did deserve their gruesome fate because foolish men don’t get second chances. Their blatant disregard for mercy and kindness is absolutely and hideously repulsive. Also, their lack of...
