the four my little ponies of the apocalypse

call off the calvary
put the unknown caller
phone down
no emergency calls
to dial from here
i have taken away the
not so elemental surprise
all would have been
concerned parties
have been smoke signaled ahead
fresh batteries in detectors
there’s a firestarter coming
to burn the house down
the messenger said
we all smile as we
consider the hydrant
across the street
