[ Stephen King inspired ] Fire

  
As if choreographed
with great purpose
by higher powers  
   
it can hypnotize  
you  
   
yet  
so spectacularly spastic  
the flame of a candle is;  
   
this  
should come as no surprise -  
   
houses  
neighborhoods  
entire towns  
   
have been destroyed  
due to a single person's  
lack of self control  
   
What's been built up for decades  
   
reduced to ash within hours
