Welcome to Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge.
The photo below is from A_Lesik at Shutterstock. For the visually challenged writer, the photo is of a group of firefighters who are attempting to get a wildfire under control.
Flames climbing higher than high
Inferno raging out of control
Dry grass, devoid of moisture
Catching fire like tinder wood
Humans try to douse the fires
But the damage is done by years of abuse
Some of us are cognizant of the need
To practice environment-friendly ways
But there are others who don’t care at all
They are oblivious to our planet burning
In the wake of abuse and neglect heaped upon it
Wake up and smell the fumes of carbon
That are making life a hell on earth
