Fire in the Mind

I couldn't help but notice

that the dead wood

in society when gathered

could make quite a bonfire

if only one could collect it

but my kindling

had been eaten

by the termites

and so the rot

gets hold of more

and more

until we all rot

    A very strong poem with an authentic moral message. Nicely written.
