Wildfire Poems: 184 / 500

! Fire In The Hole (Social Commentary)

Rating: 4.0

Masked arsonists playing
With pyrotechnics
Misconstrued
Interpretation
Unmitigated
Misrepresentation

Combustible
Elucidation
Molotov cocktails
Thrown in for good measure
Anticipating
Spectacular blast

Ruffled feathers singed
Well intentioned bystanders
Strike the flint - add
Vitriolic fuel
Attempt to fight fire
With fire backfires

Wiser ones put up
Containment field of
Indifference until the
Burning blaze of
Fireworks subsides and
Wildfire devours itself
