Short poem is lite as fire

The Entertainer


Lights flicker before the eyes

Hues dancing upon the sky

Voluptuous curves for all the marry

Hair fried

Knees bruised

Nail’s popped off like a cherry


There they lay all nice and crisp

It just took one match

Now to switch


Screaming, begging for life

Eye’s glazed over like a fresh pie

The wood creeks

It sobs

Just be thankful to be alive


Fire scourges through the woods

More matches to make it misunderstood

I have a name

May it be Arson

All I do is cause destruction


Many animal’s dig for life

Hot as coals

Hot as ash

Happy birthday

Time for cash




Do you have a match?
