Planet On Fire - Poem by Christina Sunrise

We are under the wire,

the planet is on fire.

Not only is the Earth’s core,

but surface at the shore.

Little do people know,

that the fire can

get out of control,

that they can go,

Disappear from here.

fire burning

for almost 50 years.

It’s in Pennsyvania the state,

Did you know the past fate?

The fire started

around the year 1962,

that’s when it started,

I believe to be true.

It’s coal under the ground.

that is where it is to be found.

Now google it today

and you will see the fire

is here to stay.

Unless we use clay

The resistant barrier in

which they made

then turned

into a mistake.

The barrier was partly


making the fire continue

with more heat.

Now pray for mother Earth,

and for her new rebirth.

Pray for her in a good way,

with thoughts to keep us safe.
