Everyone gets effed up sometime
Even the Earth splits
And spits lava
Such beautiful names-
Vesuvius, Mt. Etna and Hawaii
When will the lava burst? Again
Civilized people are stunned
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!”
