Wake up to Reality

Life safety is something he smugly refused.
Burglary and Fire Protection he'd never use.
Until an electrical fire caused his home to ignite
and now with anguish he laments his plight.
9 months later in a Residence Inn he still stays,
a painful reminder of what happened that day.
