20 – the gods are weeping

while the climate changed

and the people went thirsty
and the animals died
and the viruses spread
and the innocent suffered
and the kids were slaughtered
and the fires raged
and the books were burned
and the idols were worshipped
and the empires crumbled

and the people argued
and the people took sides
and the people hated
and the people judged
and the people fought
and the people cried

and the people prayed for salvation

their gods watched, weeping
