Racing the Inferno

by Sky Kelly

 

The metropolis burned
It brightened up the sky
the scorching flames
ignited so high

The people fled
the animals too
racing the inferno
the faster it grew

The blazing orange
illuminated the night
despite its destruction
it was quite a sight

How did this happen?
Everyone was shaken
looking to the distance
praying no one was taken

The enraged sky above
rained down the ashes
circling the civilians
as it lightly crashes

Caught up in the air
is thick black smoke
it shows no mercy
as the people choke

A dark figure stands
on top of the hill
with a match in his hand
he’s out for the kill
