“Australian Bushfires” by James Aitchison

Australian bushfires

They say the smoke has reached Chile.

Not just the smoke from our blazing forests,

But the smoke from lost fireys and townsfolk,

And thousands oft homes,

And five hundred million wild animals,

And cattle and sheep and bold horses

Burned alive in once-lush paddocks.

 

They say the smoke is toxic.  It is not.  

It is sacred.
