The Hellhounds (Villanelle) by Andrew Scott

The Hellhounds are breathing fire tonight.
Watching all they are burning.
Lighting up the dark skylight.

Their snarls grow as they prepare to fight.
The rabid, hungry teeth are yearning.
The Hellhounds are breathing fire tonight.

The innocent ones see their homes burn bright
as the flames are yearning.
Lighting up the dark skylight.

Confusion assists in waiting souls that ignite.
No need to give a sympathetic warning.
The Hellhounds are breathing fire tonight.

Missiles of chaotic ignorance take flight
not caring their destruction is disturbing.
Lighting up the dark skylight.

Always believing the tortured minds are right.
Strikes against those who are not conforming.
The Hellhounds are breathing fire tonight.
Lighting up the dark skylight.
