Why don’t the blades of grass
Curl away from the flame
How dare the sun
Not hide its head in shame
Why does that tree
Stand so tall
Why don’t the stars
Click off and fall
Your being is twisted
Your body is burned
Life is ending
But the world is preserved

That is really quite amazing...if you think about it. I know I never had. The lines "How dare the sun, not hide it's head in shame" Got me I must confess. The were spectacular!

Wow. I love the rhythm and the word choice. "Click off and fall" really made me catch my breath.
