The Ladies of Horror

Hubris
by H.R. Boldwood

The Ancients returned and sat among the ruins, heads bowed in sorrow.
“Foolish, foolish Man,” they cried. “What have you done?”
A lone tree, gnarled and withered, towered above the concrete carcasses and septic seas; its blighted branches giving witness to Armageddon as it burst across the horizon.
In the blink of an eye, Man, the instrument of his own undoing, had come and gone, leaving a legacy of ash in his wake.
And then the Ancients prayed.
Prayed for new life to spring forth from that ash—a life of hope, enlightenment, and stewardship—a life devoid of arrogance, greed, and hubris.
But most of all, a life devoid of Man.

    Loved the last line, a terrific story.

  2. I should be biased against the Ancients here, but I think I agree with them. Great work!
