California Burning

The inhumanity of indifference
The failure of empathy
A masochistic natural world
Absent a predators sympathy

But the solace of a new born child
The dawn of smoky ashen sprigs
Into the void comes hope and life
Evolution wins when a farmer digs

Did the world have a choice
Did someone really make wine
What happened to the water
God has enough for every sign

Is it something we should endure
Is it only a calamity to those who burn?
How busy am I during this tempest?
Busy enough until it's my turn
