The orders were in and as impossible as it seemed
there was no risk or pressure, there might have been
a few jittery nerves, and it did scare some a bit
but it happens sometimes. It’s an uphill climb.
If you listen to the voices you would have seen
through the smoke screen. But you know
where it shows, there’s fire.

  1. My guys and gals in the volunteer fire service would quite agree with this! Of course the orders are to put the fire out! Well that’s my guess anyway.

    Thanks for your visit. Iffin it’s more stories your looking for I changed the icon link to my Flash Fiction site.

    While poetry will always be close to my heart I am having fun with Flash Fiction. Cheers!
