the water is shallow
and her tears still reflects from
yesterdays trauma and failure
there’s something in the wind
like a whisper longing to be heard
as someone is yelling fire
our city lies in flames.
i’m reaching out for help
but i’m choking on the ashes
we are watching them all burn to death
they were woman and children
all eyes turn away from this horrible sight
can you hear us fighting for our lives?
heart breaking screams from the ashes
through the cyanide in the skyline
the devils eyes are upon us
