The Candle

Do not go back into

the house

because the building

is on fire

Ignited by a candle

That hit the silk


Furious burning flames

As the children

Try to escape

Grey smog covers

The ceiling

And it's hard to breathe

Hopeless kids

Crawling on their knees

Finally out of the

Burning building

The children later


They don't have their

Mother standing by their


So don't go into the


Please kids stay outside

For the mother your trying to

Save has not

Even arrived

Don't go back in the building

Because your mom is somewhere outside

Dancing in the club

As her children die
