Fire Madness 2

February 17, 2000

Lost and found
In a 4 or 5 million dollar home.

The best I could do
And all I loved,
My sweet Sunnyvale ghetto home,
Went up in fire and twirling smoke.

Now here I sit
Not knowing what to think.
Yet feeling the sting,
as tears roll down my cheeks.

Lost and found
in a 4 or 5 million dollar home!
How life can change,
so radically,
in the smallest measurement
of time.

Trapped in the master bath.
Drowning my sorrows, loss and past
in a Jacuzzi tub built for two
with such a
glorious, beautiful view.

The goddess moon shines her smile
On mount Umunhum hills
I knew life was ironic,
But I guess truly,
This is cool.
