The Brave Firefighter – A Poem

A brave firefighter
entered a burning house
as the child and the dog
were stuck inside a closet

The heat escalated
as the wood & metal blended
the sheet of foil around the fighter
quickly melted

The small dog barked
as the child clung to it
shielded each other
as the fire surrounded them

The fighter broke the door
grabbed the child
hid the dog underneath the jacket
and jumped down the floor

The fire fighter got badly hurt
as his child tightly hugged
the dog too was safe
as the family was rescued
from some really bad fate
