Ashes fall from the sky

Fire devours trees, homes

We mortal wonder why

And I write feeble poems

As the rage increases still

Trees burn like birthday candles

Their tears collect on the window sill

The once bright sky now dulls

Like the times are ending

Well, just for we silly humans

The inferno marks a new beginning

Some things rise from ashes

So we choke and wheeze and cough

Complain that our lives affected

Cry about the things we’ve lost

Because nature we disrespected
