Feed the Fire


Heat pounds the rooftop
Hot enough to catch afire
How long can it hold up
When will relief arrive

Dry arid desert surrounds
Cracks in the parched dirt
Four walls about to blaze
Igniting reckless fire within

Without water to quench
The inevitable damage
Straw and thatch the tinder
The match the beating of the sun

Winds will speed the spread
Flames that engulf and terrorize
Fuel the fury of heat
Feed fire till its out of control
