burning house

Salim Bhai please
Get out of the house
It is burning
Please get out

It is but one room
I cannot leave
It is my house
After all

Salim Bhai please
Get out of the house
It is burning
Please get out

It is but two rooms
I cannot leave
It is my neighborhood
After all

Salim Bhai please
Get out of the house
It is burning
Please get out

I have seen fatal fires
They do not crackle so
It is my city
After all

Salim Bhai please
Get out of the house
It is burning
Please get out

I have taught my kids
To douse flames
Not to run
After all

Salim Bhai please
Salim Bhai?
Please answer
Please
