No Paradise In Paradise As Wildfire Kills At Least Five

There is a town in California that is misnamed
In Northern California Paradise where five people died in wildfire flames
Trapped in their cars trying to flee from smoke inhalation dying
Victims of a fire out of control no matter how hard fire fighters are trying
A wild fire is deadly to all sadly in its path
Total destruction from its wrath
Hesitate to evacuate and all may be lost
Death can easily be the cost
Malibu in the south is under mandatory evacuation due to the Woolsey fire
For residents in the path of raging flames the outlook is most dire
Once again up and down the state the wildfires rule supreme
With brush bone dry and brown instead of moisture laden green
Environmentalists all attempts to cull dead trees have blocked
No wonder we are fighting fires round the clock
