Flame washes over

Devouring greedily

Hunger so vast

Only time slakes.

Blacken char

Withers what could be

Famine strikes out

Fueling need.

Seeking what once was

Despair overshadows.

Darkness descends

Hope dwindles

As night creatures feed.

Eyes wide open

Dawn rises

Survivors pray

Today is unknown

The new world displayed.
