Sad that this isn't fiction at all - and I see you included the fiction tag below... really makes you stop and think for a moment.

This is a very clever use of the visual and spatial dimensions of the page, with the bombs falling from above the rain clouds, and the we waiting underneath.

I only meant that it was fiction for me, as in I have not experienced this thankfully.

I see. I thought the tag was ironic, if that's the correct word. I'm speaking for myself here, but I feel immensely lucky to belong to one of the very few generations in European history to never experience a war first hand. I was born in the 90s. If I had been born exactly a century earlier, I would have been cannon fodder in WWI. Me and everyone I know.

Story prompt:

The classic six-word story. Make it classy, make it memorable. Make it in six words.

You may need to pad with ..... in order to beat the minimum-length pixies.
