Words for Grenfell #2


A spark then a flame,
Smoke then the alarm.
Panicked shouts abound,
As the fire begins to harm.

It courses upwards,
The blaze begins to grow.
More alarms going off,
As the neighbours begin to know.

The heat starts to build,
As the fire leaps in ascent.
The thick, acrid smoke pours,
Through every corridor and vent.

Shouts turn to screams,
People trapped in the glow.
A tower they call home,
Now a pyre of endless woe.

The mountainous inferno,
The tragedy and the pain.
The horror as so many lives,
Shall never see day again.

Consumed by a spark.
