My Burning Desire

Workshop # 3

Necessity is the Mother of Invention.
I am proud that I am useful
To light a lamp in a place of Worship,
To light the fire in the Kitchen
for the daily bread;
To light the lantern for Studies,
To direct the way in Darkness,
To light the flame for the funeral pyre.

But, Oh! God Almighty,
I am ashamed of my utility
For the burning of a bride
for the greed of money and material;
For the destruction of a dwelling
To stealthily claim Insurance,
and to eliminate evidence in crime.

To now Experience the pain
My friend and I burnt ourselves today.
Grant us the Power to Extinguish
Ourselves when the Intention is criminal.
