Fire - Poem by Larry Boodry

Wailing sirens
shatter the quiet
darkness of pre-dawn,
cries of 'Fire! '
echo through the streets.

Thrill-seekers,
drawn by a curiosity
both morbid and human,
gather around the burning tenement,
laughing and talking.

Unaware
of the anguish
being endured by the young mother
whose child
perished inside.
