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

 

Hey…

 

Do you have a match?
