The overturned blackened sky
Cast a darkened shadow
As ashes
Filled the warm, smoky, breeze
Orange blazes of fast-flying dancers
Whipped around
Leaving a dusty trail
Of thick ask choking the air
As the sweet, blue sky fades
Into a mystic world,
Filled with smoke and flames
The sorrowful world
Turns up-side down
As nice blue skies slowly start a new life
Filled with freedom
A barren wasteland
Is all left from the fiery death
We will never forget the angry undying winds
And the single ember that started this living hell
