Burn Baby Burn

The woods are silent tonight

There is not even a peep in it

All of a sudden there is a light

It grows larger by the minute

The animals run for their lives

trying not to breath in the smoke

only a few of them survive

and sadly this is no joke

The firemen come

with their firetrucks and all

not knowing where the fire came from

and the smoke is thick, so they have to crawl

When the light dies down

and the firemen leave

the surviving animals do not make a sound

they just look around and grieve

Their homes are gone

there is no food

So they have to move on

Let's keep animals in their homes

By preventing wildfires
