This is How

Work Text:

This is how it ends

Fine mist sprinkling down
upon the shelterless masses crowding
the last stretch of land not eaten by the sea
Dark, roiling clouds blotting out
the sky, lightning skittering along
the undersides in anticipation of release
What remained would soon drown
by the sins of forefathers who believed
they were better than nature
and nature responded

This is how it begins
