It only takes a moment

A singular breath charged

With venomous intent

For harmony to go up in flames

Mushrooming into an angry cacophony

Of voices raised

Like crashing cymbals

Unleashing wildfire

Snapping gossamer harnesses

From mercurial tongues

Hurtling fireballs

In all directions

Innocent hearts scorched

Within the destructive blaze

And when the violent flame dies

Regretful billows hung low

What can be restored

From the shambles and ash

Left behind?
