Fire by Grace Moore (Highly Commended)

trees burnt, grass course,
hearts hurt, throats hoarse,
people stuck, praying, hoping,
animals burnt, dying choking,
people trapped, people stuck,
try to get out, no such luck, the raging dragon, pursuing its path,
killing the livestock, mother and calf,
the demon comes closer, burning everything in sight,
the red flame kills, and turns day into night.
