grand prairie burns

grand prairie is burning
thick gouts
of noxious black smoke
hanging over all
like a funeral shroud
sirens sing
in the distance
as i watch the plumes
hungrily climb
hints of the fire shine
in the man-made
overcast tragedy
a reflection of my mind
given form
the land suffers
the same ignoble fate
as the fool
