Hell's Hungry Quire

Rush into the fire
as it rages higher
hear the building burn
hells own hungry quire

heat beyond belief
causing frantic grief
smoke makes you blind
flames above and beneath

everyone runs to hide
but you charge inside
despite all the risk
you wont be denied

peoples lives are at stake
weak walls burn and shake
not just your job, but your vow
lives this fire shall not take

fight against the fire
its situation dire
the hoses make it learn
youve denied hells hungry quire

***In dedication to all those brave fire fighters out there.***

    I love the rhyme scheme btw, its uncommon (Report) Reply

poet William Wordsworth

Oft I had heard of Lucy Gray:
And, when I crossed the wild,
I chanced to see at break of day
The solitary child.

No mate, no comrade Lucy knew;
