Ashes settling upon the snow,
a veil of denial, saying they didn’t know.
Days and nights,
looking no different than any other might.
People looked away,
people turned away,
except for humanity’s worst busy working.
Terrible things…
Unspeakable things…
We said it couldn’t happen again.
We swore it wouldn’t happen again.
We were wrong.
