When The Mountain With All Its Peaks Are Ablaze (Pantoum) - Poem by Gert Strydom

flames spread further with destruction
from where the mountain is ablaze
running into almost every direction
with smoke causing a big haze

From where the mountain is ablaze
fire-fighters attack the flames with huge devotion
with smoke causing a big haze
monitors do their planning with presumption,

fire-fighters attack the flames with huge devotion
but the fire spreads as far as they can gaze,
monitors do their planning with presumption,
some people are trapped as in a maze,

but the fire spreads as far as they can gaze,
while fire-fighters use everything at their disposition
some people are trapped as in a maze,
are caught in moments of emotion

while fire-fighters use everything at their disposition
running into almost every direction,
are caught in moments of emotion,
flames spread further with destruction.
