Fires they are a burning, churning, disconcerting
Mother Nature’s fury learning earning the respect.
Respect the big and little, one’s age twelve, do not bear
When they light a fire, bring in ire, make things dire,
Bring lost love close to the wire.
May they walk with those burnt bodies, change their bands,
hold their weeping hands, see their crying lands.
Hear babies choke, on poisonous smoke, mothers broke,
May they see Dad fall on his knees, broke.
You light a fire, stand back, admire
Run away become a liar
You light fire, make lives expire, till no breath they require
You light a fire, to fuel desire, you must expire…
This dry land cries ‘Less heat!’, please take the mistreat off repeat
But they don’t care, climate change, a dare
Politicians I put you there, in the flare and see how you fair
On the Sunshine Coast, in the roast, a core host,
You be up there, not my family, friends, the unwilling
Instead of sitting back, down here chilling, killing, drilling,
Not willing, to change for climate change
Fires they are a burning, returning, undiscerning
Mother Nature yearning for the learning and respect.
