by Paul Curtis

On bonfire night
Across the land
Fireworks will be lit
By unthinking hand

And when you watch
The Catherine wheels
Spiral of fire
How do you feel?

Is it exiting to watch?
Does it inspire?
As it spins and spins
The wheel of fire

Catherine was a saint
Who died on the wheel
Didn't you know?
Now how do you feel?

It was an instrument
Of torture and pain
Think about that
As it spins round again

I am a fifty something family man with a passion for writing and I draw inspiration from those around me.
