armchair firefighting
(viii)

the sixty metre
invisible
efficiency kangaroo
bounces to the burns
the builded burns

deep within the shadowed ruins
the black and burnt soot and ash
the char and black roasted meeters
the char and black roasted meeting room

he knew
to be more effective
‘put out a bigger
sixty metre
invisible
efficiency kangaroo
pocket snack’

the sixty metre
invisible
efficiency kangaroo
pokes inside the broken walls
nibbles at the broken floor

on sixty metre
invisible
efficiency kangaroo
packet sacrifices

hops off
stops
and proudly sighs
“that was an efficient fire”
