Flotsam

In the old days, before cars and airplanes, there were carriages. These carriages were pulled by beasts known as "horses." These horses were strong and could pull carriages filled with people.

But that's not important right now, because the earth is being pummeled by cosmic debris that is carrying microscopic organisms from other solar systems, other galaxies, from far away in the universe - and these organisms are constantly evolving into new life forms, and soon enough they will take over the earth and we will be overrun and exterminated as so much flotsam and jetsam.

Meanwhile, back in the 19th century, the horses are plodding along in the mud-filled streets of Laredo, knowing nothing of the future, save what time they can expect to be fed.
