Evil
Evil people
Carrying fire wood
Starting a fire
Whilst having fun

Burning
Raging inferno
In a small yard
Smoke high up

Evil smiling from men

Burning ashes
Hideous laughing
Growing inferno
Pollution fills the air

The day was gloomy
A bon fire was being created
Night begins to fall
The blaze was dense

The inferno was rapidly growing
Flame gained land
Out into the street
The creation of chaos
It slowly drifted

Through the urban
Sea of flame
Once a calm place
Now full of chaos

The sound of sirens
Water splashing
The inferno shrinking

Fire fighters take control
Flame was small
Finally it was over
Once and for all

Tamborine Mountain Lookout by Leonie Hill (Highly Commended)
