To the ground

I don’t want to set the world on fire.

but I’d love to watch it burn.

If I thought the world was on fire,

I’d be looking for gasoline.

 

I don’t want to set the world on fire,

but I like to watch it turn.

If I believed the world was on fire,

I’d be searching for branches and twigs.

 

I don’t want to set the world on fire,

I just love to see it churn.

If it felt the world was on fire,

I’d be hunting for kindling.

 

I don’t want to set the world on fire,

but I’d love to see concern.

If I sensed the world was on fire,

I’d fan flames to keep it going.

 

I don’t want to set the world on fire,

but, I’d still love to watch it burn.

 

Humbly yours,

J
