Igneous Fountain

Dikachi Opaigbeogu

A hot atmosphere when approaching the hill

Fiery water began to spill

So big and so crumbly. A shadowy mountain

There’s no refreshment from this igneous fountain


It’s melting the metal you manage to make

And boiling the bricks you bothered to bring

Coming to this place is a huge mistake

Forever the fire will burn you and sting


A cloud is arising outside of the mouth

Of this devilish peak, the smoke flies about

With fumes that block out everything that’s in sight

The flame bright as day, the smog dark as night


Alas, the eruption of anger is done

Away with the vapor and out comes the sun

The fire has cooled and heat does it lack

But don’t be mislead for the flame will come back
