World On Fire - Poem by Arsiema Berhane

“Paul, Paul
The world is on fire”
My youngest sister said,
While still in her bed.

“Paul, Paul
The world is on fire”
She announced once more
Still looking at Paul.

But Paul was busy watching and
At the world map he set on fire.
That was his heart’s desire.
