“In matters of life and death, man will always revert to his basest instincts. When civility and reason are stripped away, only the animal remains. And this animal screams. It wails in torment.”― J. D. Keown, “What Ye Sow”

All Worlds Wayfarer, Issue #X
“What Ye Sow”, by J. D. Keown
On a rural farmstead in the Idaho Panhandle live the man, the woman, and the boy.
Day and night the man toils, fashioning his Angels. Preparing his yearly autumnal tribute to the Harvesters that govern these lands—a tradition handed down from father to son. This year, however, the boy has plans of his own. Too long has he suffered at the hands of his father and mother.
When civility and reason are stripped away, only the animal remains.
