A house on fire

by Shantae Stewart

A house on fire.

We get on like…a bloody house on fire.

Rooftops gone, Choo Choo Charlie.

Choo choo chuff.

I’m burning, yes, but I don’t mind life rough.

A house on fire.

We get on like…a bloody house on fire.

4…5…1 There goes my pages.

The flames dance like they’ve known for ages

That…

A house on fire.

We get on like…

Bloody hell, where’s my mind again?

Ink, ink. chalk?

No, I gotta jot you down in pen.

And tell ya. Should I tell ya, then?

I think my heartbeat remembers you as its first count to ten.

A house on fire.

We get on like a bloody house on fire.

High stakes. High stakes.

Salem is turning.

Pompeii, Pompeii,

May we never stop burning
like,

A house on fire.

We get on like…

A house on fire.
