Beneath the Fiery Sky

From our perch at the top of an elm
Beneath the fiery red sky
The world stirs below
As we sit idly by

Earth rumbles a sigh of relief
Ready once again to trust
We smile knowingly at her
And she, back at us

The heavens flood with bright white light
Around the soaring birds
Our indigenous humanity coerced to return
And we watch
As society burns
