Dad Ran

The town was having a county fair
To the event carnival came
Daddy and his brother worked
So to the carnival
They could go that day
In the fields hoed
Cotton picked
Earned a 
Much joy
Inside the tent
Animals, trapeze
Acrobats, many clowns
Someone lit a cigarette
Carelessly tossed aside match 'pon straw
Tiny spark then a flame roars_dad ran
