the fire

The tongue of flames rose, Licking
the tenebrous sky, Rising
higher they burn, Lighting
up the sky, Bringing
terror to all that watch, Burning 
the city of light, Licking
the blackened faces of children, Rising 
until it creates a monster, Lighting
the world with a terrible brightness, Bringing sorrow to the ones who remain, Burning
all that was once good in this land.
