Fire

Fire

 

See the fire and watch it burn
So many lessons we can learn
With brutal beauty, cleansing all
Into its spell we all could fall

All things are taken by its will
It’s thrilling for it’s never still
It hypnotises as it glows
But never kind or mercy shows

Uncompromising power so raw
It knows no bounds and has no law
An orange villain, no disguise
The closest witness also dies

Then treat with care this violent friend
He touches things, they’ll never mend
Respect him – he’s no fool or liar
His power is awesome, learn from fire

The Train

The Train

Don’t be a fool and miss the train
It will not pass this way again
So jump aboard and take this ride
Your future now is open wide

And yet beware with such a mind
For searchers, in the end, will find
What can be done by those who know?
The burden now can never go

A world of beauty and of vice
One man eats cake, one hopes for rice
And ‘powers’ we know one day will fall
Still play their game, no doubts at all

Let us then in our faith be true
Let’s hope each day for something new
Respecting old ways, wanting more
We’re on the train – what lies in store?
