“And then we wept”

When we saw what we had done we all sat down and wept.

Wept because it was over.

Wept because of the destruction we had caused.

The towns we had come through had been reduced to ruins and the streams running in and out of those towns were no longer blue but black with soot.

The trees whose leaves had fallen early because of what we had done were black too with soot.

Everything was dirty.

Everything was destroyed.

And we had caused it.

So we wept.

Because there was nothing else left to do.
