The volcano never apologised  
it had a job to do  
seething deep down with molten fire  
hard motivated to a certain goal  
it spluttered and coughed  
then whiplashed when commanded -    
and erupted.  
The volcano, never recognised,  
stood in a barren landscape  
arched back, a soldier, smoking  
with his head blown off.
