Demonstrators burn tyres to block streets at an anti-Maduro rally.

Ring of fire

rolls perilously

through the pitted streets

 

Rebellion is alive,

jumping flames of protest

burn democracy

 

Toxic fumes

infect free passage

smoke smothers truth

 

Those with nothing to lose

burn with the fury

of the deprived

 

There is only

protest left,

in a burning tyre
