THE WAY IT WENT DOWN: THE WITNESS
I don’t know when I came here, but it was a long time ago. This city is the greatest I have ever seen, and I have seen many, though my memory is dim.
I remember a time when I thought about such things. The why of everything. Why am I here, who put me here? Why?really I no longer worry. Instead, I smile. There is no more why. There never was a why.
Sometimes it seems I’ll go mad, waiting for so long. And I’ve been here a long time. A long, long time.
I’m the witness. Extinction cannot occur without a witness.
