There was an old firetruck on the side of the road
Upside-down trees in the river
Broken bridges, Burnt bridges
There was a whole day to take care of

Road cones and wasteland
The thermostat was right up, The fog was all the way down
Like a shroud

An uneasy sense, all pervasive
Divisions, Divided

Giant sinkholes, quicksand, liquefaction, Earths expansion, and contraction
Just quivers really,
signalling insignificance

It’s horrible to be reminded
Sometimes you just want to bury your head
Sometimes it gets buried for you
