#writephoto Pants And Vanities On Fire

February 9, 2017 , , , ,

bonfire of vanities

bonfire of vanities

We watched them huddle around the fire to confer
About the plot they hatched to silence her
Laws and rule books were tossed in to burn
The flames grew large and the wind swirled
The bonfire of their vanities was burning in space
They were enveloped in a hellish backfire
There was no remedy for the sudden change
With pants all aflame they tried to conspire
We could neither believe them nor save them

They were consumed by their own vanities.
