A little blaze in the park,
Only a cigarette, a tiny spark,
When suddenly an inferno starts,
More powerful than 1000 farts.

Loads of ashes pour down,
Everybody's leaving town.
People are suffering excruciating pain,
The world is sad, a slain.

Dead bodies lie on the street,
All charred from head to feet,
Bucketful of water is being used,
Nobody in the world's amused.

Lives are lost on this tragic day,
Even worse the 'Ash Wednesday',
Through the burning fire people flee,
Nobody is smiling with glee.

This flare has ended its wrath,
But just look at its aftermath,
Human are burnt in flames,
Fire, it can't be tamed.

The author's comments:
This poem is to reflect Victoria Bushfire in Feb 2009 that has killed nearly 200.

I liked it except for the one line about "a thoudand farts" That doesn't fit in with the horrible, burning, sadness, the Victoria Bushfire caused.
