douglas scotney (boomer / Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia. Resides in Adelaide)
to Ekam (revised version)
because of Us,
how to stop destruction,
or why it must be so
(unless you have no say)
are things You must want to know.
to fall for fire to create the more;
to create Something that creates?
Do You want Us to stop destruction
by providing Something
with reason to ignore
what fire We have created
for Something to fall for?
If 'no', it must be so.
