Poem: Burnt Sand Castles

Burnt Sand Castles
by, Melissa R. Mendelson

All the land around me is afire,  
burning down to their heart’s desire,  
and all my memories lie in ruin.  
That’s what we get for assuming 
that they would just be satisfied,  
but all it did was feed into their lies.  
Now, we plant the For Sale Sign,  
and they continue to buy their time 
to turn this ash into clay 
and build a world for only them to stay.
