Keeping The Fires Burning (poem)

Keeping The Fires Burning

 

 

around the world people are burning

losing their humanity

taking on a new skin of flame

 

we who drop the bombs and

fire the missiles spreading more

flames to the already burning globe

lose our humanity

taking on a new skin of flame

 

with the flick of a switch

we may yet all be devastated in

the firestorms of war and hatred –

letting others be consumed

destroying their homes

ruining the earth

we all burn

 

 

Joanne Fisher

 

This was based on a poem I wrote a few years ago which I’ve completely rewritten.
