In a dark and lofty floor
Is where it starts and then it’s licking at the door
The family sleeps
No alarm beeps
And through the vents the acrid smoke begins to seep

Pumpkin orange and whorish red
The flames do dance and quickly they begin to spread
The Christmas tree, it catches too
And now the flames also take on a bluish hue

And when the family wakes
They realize it is too late
But still they will not see
This attic fire was meant to be

The neighbors wake to shouts so dire
They run with teacups to extinguish the fire
Handkerchiefs to smother flames
A nameless evil is saddled with the blame

And the stars they burn so hot
Hot and icy blue
And the stars they do care not
What ‘ere the fire consumes

The children’s screams are clearly heard
They leap from windows like some kind of injured birds
Their shouts of fright pierce the night
As they descend the fledglings fail to take flight

All witnesses lose heart
The lesson now begins to smart
For all can clearly see
This attic fire was meant to be
