Prairie Fire

Prairie Fire Written: by Tom Wright 7-9-2016 The stench of torched grass fills the air, I fathom not the devastation being done. Perhaps from a smoker who didn’t care, Or a trash fire ignited by a negligent one. I visualize hay that some rancher has lost, Lying charred, after the expense of bailing; To the beef you buy this will escalate cost, Because calmer heads weren’t prevailing; The smoke formerly black is turning grey, The firemen should be doing their thing. Fighting a prairie fire is not child’s play, Neither are matches a child’s plaything.
