Smoke by Isobel Riches (3rd)

Smoke coils in the sky
Lashing like a silver whip
A deathly streak of grey
A grey whip of choking death

The smoke twists in the air
More dangerous than an angry cobra
It hisses in delight
At the pain and panic it will cause

Silver tendrils spread across the sky
Grasping at the weathered clouds
Spreading to cover the sun
Air pollution has begun
