Bottle Rocket Requiem

September 6, 2019 § Leave a comment

You were

                 Born with

                                    Flames in your eyes

Showers

                  Of sparks

                                   Firecracker surprise

 

Black gunpowder, short fuse

Built for beauty, for speed

Waiting to go up in smoke

One spark is all

 

You needed

                         A glass

                                     Bottle to be strong

Countdown

                        Lift off

                                      Into oblivion

 

Wake up you lazy Guardians

Will you sleep too through this blast?

Prepare a room in Father’s house

Here comes another bottle rocket

 

Faster

           Than life

                            Exploding into night
