Volcanic Anger

IMG_8314

Everyone gets effed up sometime

Even the Earth splits

And spits lava

Such beautiful names-

Vesuvius, Mt. Etna and Hawaii

But wait?

Pompeii?

All over

When will the lava burst? Again

Civilized people are stunned

He’s insane

Families smothered; some make their escape

When I explode.

It takes centuries for civilization to reappear

On these shores!

Oh it is going to be a long wait.

Meanwhile the gossipy archealogists

minerologists and geologists

pick at the safe corners of the blast

mumbling at least it adds to the land mass

Six meters of ashes are hard to come out of

It takes centuries.

No wonder they keep repeating oft

“Don’t blow your top!”
