World on Fire

Smoke plumes climb

Cranes and towers

Machines and minds.

Burning forests

Scolding heat

Shade that comforts

The humble and meek.

Clamoring screams

Invade our dreams

Of family peace

And serene scenes.

Terror reigns

On screens and phones

Another soldier

Alone seeks home.

Confusion and chaos

Division and doubt

Watch what you think

And speak out your mouth.


Hypnotic shrines


And molded minds.


In the cut

We whisper songs

As the smoke climbs up.
