Now they look down on nothing

This is a scene out of Before They Are Hanged. I like these little moments between characters when we get to learn more about their thoughts and feelings.

Also, on account of my poor penmanship, here is the text for you:

'This empire's come and gone and here they still are, looking down on it all.
Here they'll still be long after all of us have gone back to the mud.'

'They looked down on my home.'


'Now they look down on nothing.'

'Will you go back to The North after this?'

'Maybe, I have some scores to settle. Some deep hard scores.'

'But if I let them lie, I don't suppose anyone will be worse off for it. I reckon they all think I'm dead. And no one is anything but relieved about it.'
