Tinderbox Spark


Watch out for that tinderbox when you’re playing with that flame,

you might start a conflagration – things will never be the same.


From just a little tiny spark you might create a blaze,

one that will just blind you with all that smoke and haze.


From that little single flame you might make an inferno,

one that you cannot escape no matter where you then go.


It’s burning out of all control, it’s eating up the trees

and shows no sign of abating, it’s spreading in the breeze.


This raging blaze might be contained, kept within a limit,

but it’s going to smoulder endlessly, feeding on what’s in it.


The warning is a famous one -- ‘Play with fire, you’ll get burnt’,

but maybe it’s a lesson that you never really learnt.
