From the Ashes she became

The world is round
And it is not for nothing that they say
What goes around comes around
To confront and to haunt
Know that your touch maims and taints
And your so-called treasures bear the stains
Of the ring of fire you built
For me to burn
But what did you know
Of the dragon I mothered
Waiting for the fire and the heat
And the rage and the fury
Bidding time to be birthed
And just when you thought it was about to end
The serpentine tongue
Girdled you in its fiery breath
From the Ashes I rose
And called for the games to end
