Wildfires

Orange in the night
As the fire spreads the forest falls
The fire we fight

The fire fighters yell and shout
The forest calls
With sirens screeching out

Men and women run
Helicopters pour water over it all
Until it’s all done

Tsunami!

By Damien Knight

Out in the crowd a man
He stands there, camera in hand
Filming a wave two stories high
Crash, it hits and he dies

A child, she runs, a native girl
Smack, the wave tosses her to and fro
Slammed up against a tree
She grabs on for dear life, breathe

Children alone wandering around
Lost, abducted, some are found
Mommies and daddies killed
People are missing still

This is the tragedy
Of the great tsunami
