The Pyramid Lake Fire (2016)
To witness great, the rivers in the sky.
The winter flooding down the streets of town
to watch in awe as tires on cars could drown,
enough water to build and build our lie.
Now snow has taken hold, an icy cold,
a chill that makes things clear, a hop, a skip,
a jump, could lead to hospital, a trip,
an icy journey hopefully not told.
Before all this the sage would slowly burn
on reservation land, Pyramid Lake.
A wild fire that would burn for acres long,
the black and charcoal ruins of concern
and hopefully memories in flame will take
and listen to this instrumental song.
