Element of Destruction

The fire will consume

Those foolish enough to assume

Its golden beauty meant benevolence

When it represents malevolence

The flames mock those entranced

With its swift and graceful dance

For when admirers draw to near

Its heat makes them recoil in fear

When it burns greatness to ashes

It lives on in madly cheery flashes

It warms and gives life

But don't forget it represents strife

As fire is the element of the devil

For in its destruction does he revel

Fire can also mean the phoenixes' rebirth

A subject that causes much mirth

For fire sends people to the cemetery

Making rebirth necessary

Remember, fire will deceive

Trust it, and only injury will you receive
