Sequel Iii To Burning of Camphor

The camphor was burnt in a spoon all right, But the fire did set it ablaze, For inanimate camphor the fire was, Good enough to burn it to ashes, But for animate it cannot be so, For survival is their biggest instinct, So “fire” has to be fine tuned, To set a generally acceptable hurdle gate, And those who cross it fast and first, Must get from your bag the best, Now it probably would be too hard, To conclude that, To show your real worth, You must be burnt to dust, And if somebody attempts you with that, Then he is not testing your worth, He in fact is destroying you to a certain death.
