Fire!  Fire!

 
The offense was intended, real.
I recoil in shock and pain,
as my soul’s dry tinder bursts into flame.
 
Red-hot resentment consumes my peace.
Ugly smoke pollutes my skies,
choking charity, burning my eyes.
The angry blaze leaps hotter, higher.
 
Help me, Father!  Pour down water.
Save me.  Quickly quench the fire.
