Flames billow through city buildings

Making their way to the outskirts of town

And towards the outstretched and infinite fields


Clouds hung black and ominous with smoke

Dark droplets began to fall

And burn through the roofs of abandoned buildings


The paved streets had been destroyed

Sharp and jagged rocks digging through the tar

And stop signs and streetlights and bikes rotting with rust


Waves batter against the coastline

Making it to the streets of inland cities

And filled with debris from other demolished places


But we are all gone

And so is our pride

Washed away with our glittering cities
