There once was rain, but it stopped long ago.

The Earth turned into a dry, cracked, orange desert plain.

The People were bitter.

They had done this.

They destroyed the Earth.

They overcropped it, and did not care.

The Earth did give, but then they took too much.

The Earths rivers and oceans dryed and shriveled up like so many tears drying up after not being able to cry anymore.

The Earth had given all that it possibly could.

Oh, if only the People had known when to stop.

When to take only a little, and give back as much as it takes.

Oh, these lessons we should have learned earlier.
