Yellowstone

It seems at Yellowstone Park
The Earth’s crust is very thin.
If the world were to end, this
Is where it would begin. And
Just yesterday, they found there’s
More fire underneath than they
Thought. And it occurs to me that
No battle is as fiercely fought
As between the need for a thicker
Skin and the burn of fires within.
No peace more dearly bought.
