A Hero But Not To Claim
You may love the heat of things.
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
And perhaps you are attracted,
To that which goes out of control...
With visions to believe,
'Someone' will perceive you to be a hero.
But getting too close to smoke can kill.
Especially if your are the kind to allow,
A deep breathing to boast...
A chest to be seen by other folks,
Hoping one brave enough...
Who 'is' a hero but not to claim,
Makes attempts to stop you...
From choking to death on your perceptions.
