Forests and Homes Abandoned by Policy

They put the lie
to environmental care

and putting people first
when they let smoke
choke up our air...

Will citizens
recognize

that the forests
are forgotten?

It seems like
no accident

And homes
...good homes

Are marked
as not worth saving

We are angry
with arsonists

But what about
those who let
our towns burn

instead of
building fire breaks
and actually
putting stuff out

contrary to
innocent assumption

they watch
as it creeps
out of control...
