lost value

Lost Value 
The sun coughed 
a blob of mucus flew out 
landed on a mountain top
 set it afire, 
and for miles, total devastation.
Rain cooled the mountain,
shrouded it in steam,
when the mist cleared 
a sparkling diamond of a mountain.
Overnight the price of gems fell 
valueless now. 
No good for anything other 
than as underlay for motorways
and garden paths.
