Just A Small Flicker.

Just a small flicker is all it need take
For a conflagration to make.
Whole forests can burn,
Houses too,
From a flicker of flame,
From a mistaken game,
With a match.

Just a flicker of attraction is all it need take
For a great passion to make.
Two lives changed,
Maybe more,
From a flicker of desire
That became a fire,
Made a match.

Just the smallest flicker of an idea is all it need take
For a revolution to make.
Ideas distorted,
Ideals changed,
From a flicker of thought
Mobs distort
Like a match.

Burning long,
Burning strong,
Burning wrong,
'Til all that is left
Is a cloud of ash,
The result of
A single match.
