As the alerts blared

Kylie Malafant

3 June 2020

As the alerts blared
We got numb
Not another one we all whined
Do we go, do we stay
It became a mantra.
One we sadly ignored
The fires hit N,S,E,W

Where do we go, there is nowhere…
We survived…but at what cost?
Mentally shot, physically ruined.
It will be a long road to recovery.
Locked in no way out, yet many heard the shout out.
Thank you to all.
Many friends were made in that time, some surprisingly to all.
