[ SK ] Fire

      
As if choreographed with great  
purpose by higher powers      
it can hypnotize you      
     
yet so spectacularly spastic      
the flame of a candle is      
     
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      
     
---easily reduced to ash within hours
