The Smoke Filled Sky (a lament for my country)

Testament to our past misdeeds

Confirmation of future trends

For victims, my heart bleeds

No politics justify these ends

 

The smoke filled sky blocks light and hope

Destruction and death follow

How will our burning country cope?

What hope is there for tomorrow?

 

Immediate danger on fire grounds

A fire season now six months long

Environmental disaster all around

We need more than just “stay strong!”

 

Adopt the fire advice “watch and act”

For this escalating climate emergency

Because if a nation ablaze isn’t enough fact

Our destiny is to burn again too blind to see
