I have mixed feelings about the ending. I like it because it is so true. I dislike it because I can't believe after letting people die you would be ok with saying oh well everyone dies someday. Anyhow I like the descriptions of the situation in the rest of the piece.

Interesting poem. It painted a picture from the fireman's point of view. Good job.

The ending caught me off guard.:)
It's true, but we all hope..

I liked the opening. I thought it had a lot of impact. I also liked the lines "fire burnt,.../...high". I thought you put in some nice rhythm at that point.
I thought there could have been more structure to frame the development of the poem. It might be a good idea to put stanzas is. In the third to last line, I thought the "anyway" disrupted the rhythm in the line a bit. It just didn't sound quite right.

Wow. That was sad, I think I got a little misty-eyed. I don't think I could ever take a job such as that. Not only am I a pryophobic, but I what I fear more...well, it's what this poem is all about.

wow, i really liked this. especially the last two lines. i can only imagine how hard it would be to not be able to save lives, especially when its your job.. :\
Really good job with this one. I honestly don't have anything I'd change about it.

A little morbid and very sad. Nice use of description. Subtle but clever rhyming, I didn't notice the ABAB sequence until the second group. Keep writing!
