Volcano

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.
