A spark of fire once I chanced upon

I hid it in the hollow of an old, rotting tree

Hah! In a flash I saw the forest burn down!

Is there ever a spark too small?

Good one Prasana.


A bright little spark of fire I found
And tucked it away
-in a burrow in the woods
All of the forest was razed to the ground
Does the rage of fire know
- its shouldn'ts and shoulds
