“WITCH BURNING” by CosySister (deviant art)

Everyone wants to talk about it.

No one wants to do it.

Uncomfortable indeed.

Sitting in the fire.

“Take what no longer serves me!”

That’s what spiritual folks say to the fire.

“No way cunt” says the fire. (he is Australian)

“I’m coming for it all!”

Your name. Your comfy chair.

Your vision for a better world.

Every last conceit.

These are perfect fuel.

And those who watch you burn.

Will offer ‘helpful’ suggestions.

“Not like that!” “burn like this”

“I hope you have insurance!”

Forget about defense.

Or finding the right position.

You can only burn.

Sitting in the fire.
