With flames a blaze,
the children cry.
the fear it inflicts,
the question, why?
to many lives at stake,
one small spark,
a fatal blaze.
then life itself is forgotten.
the screams of people,
are drowned out,
by the shrieking of sirens,
and the water thats spout.
the hissing fades,
the fire stamped out.
only ashes remain,
of a once abandoned house.
it once stood tall,
it once stood proud.
but thanks to a match,
its now a crumpled mound.
