Making an honest bird

Firelight

Smoke

And the scent of charred feathers

The Phoenix is burning

Again

Egg shells are made for cracking

And when people walk on tip toe

Avoiding

They may appear higher

Taller

For awhile

But it’s just an illusion

Unbalanced, they topple

Victims of their own guile

Burning is painful

But it’s honest

Besides,

The Phoenix has wings

Tip toe people can only go back to walking again
