No Cooling Down Today

I am fire and brimstone
I am a grumbling volcano
I have lain dormant for far too long

What’s the point of all this heat?
What’s the point of having power that can melt atoms?


I cannot wield them as I please?

So today I’ll not ask for permission
Nor will I ask for forgiveness
I will simply open my mouth and scream fire
I will sing meteors and yell wild rivers of lava from my tongue

No need for water here
No need for it today
I will be a volcano bursting

And you

Will have to run like hell
