sleep Vesuvius
hold at bay a heart of fire

spew your molten rage and dust

    I remember this historical gem Craig...Even in these modern times, I think there would be no escape from a volcano such as this...Was it not the lethal gas and fumes that killed these unfortunate people?..Very well done sir and congratulations - Tim
