Where There is Smoke...

Where There is Smoke...

The scenes look like a fire-breathing minister went to confront the rattlesnakes in the desert brush,
Probably with a can of gasoline.

Paradise is totally in ashes,
Just gone like the title of an old book,
Malibu is completely evacuated under smoke clouds the size of Texas thunderstorms.

It's on a biblical scale alright.

Ninety thousand acres here,
Three hundred thousand acres there,
Top off with people fleeing walls of flame doing eighty.
