INFERNO

I am 64 and loves cats, rock music, and horror fiction and poetry






Man of living fire
Inferno can burn deserts,
Or water in streams.

Streets a fiery Hell
Buildings collapsing within,
Inferno at work.

Inferno destroys
Everything he encounters,
Nought resists his flames.

Inferno melts building
Killing all within them,
Yes, he loves his work.

Fiery death comes
Slaughtering many thousands,
Inferno's best work.

Inferno's in town
Spreading fiery death around,
Tinder dry buildings.

Inferno spreads fear
Through the town and country,
Burning people to ash.
