A Day of Fire — Review in Verse

Day of FIreThis is a collection
Of six stories,
Set during Pompeii’s destruction
By a volcano’s furies.

Six authors, six views
Of the events of a single day,
As terror slowly brews
While townsfolk go their daily way.
Senators and slaves,
Brides and mothers,
Soldiers and knaves,
Whores and others —
Lives intertwined
In their loves and fears,
As they inexorably wind
To the end of their years.
Some survive, many perish:
But their stories and the setting
Is what you will cherish.
I found it quite riveting!
