Empires fall

We have seen empires rise and fall around us for five thousand years.
Every one of them tried to exterminate us.
But we have survived.
And we will survive you.
When your empire falls, as you fight over the scraps and loot the rotting corpses, we will help build the next one.
As we’ve done time and time again.
As doctors. As lawyers. As teachers. As slaves.
We will help rebuild.
When the next empire turns on us, as they always do, we will watch it crumble and fall.
Until the day we outlive you all, and build our own.
