See What I Do, and Don't

Though our iniquities
     testify against us...
Water bearers
     returned from the wells
          with cisterns dry,
Fields harvesters
     returned from the fields
          with baskets empty,
Even deer of the wild
     returned to the hills
          having eaten no grass...
O Lord, we have sinned,
     please, don't leave us!

As I punish for your sins,
     My eyes will flow
          with many tears,
               night and day,
And they will not cease.
I will not now relent.

See what I do,
     and don't.

Jeremiah 14

*the drought is ended,
and the Lord remained
