This is my first attempt at writing a piece in Latin. I am not sure if I translated everything right or if the structure is correct, and comments would be appreciated.

 

Thanks to Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse Five, and the poet Horace for the inspiration and the first line, which led to the rest of the piece.
