In the streets of Europe, pedestrians circled around a heap of flora.
Each one had posies protruding from his pouch.
But then, as more citizens died,
Soot from the cremated bodies filled the streets,
Until all the citizens lay on the cobblestone, dead.


The author's comments:
I hummed the old nursery rhyme, "Ring Around the Rosie", when it occurred to me that so many children sung this song without knowing the real meaning. And so, I decided to write the uncensored version.
