Mr Arctics, Mrs Antarticas

wait, be careful
fire and ice
the latter is usually
a foretaste of the former

go down the arctic
and you would greet fire
that could burn
the world a million times over

do not slight ice
there are flames
more destructive
than the eyes could see
and it usually starts with
the arctics we encounter
everyday - men who carry such a dry and cold land in them
you would froze in their midst

yet if you dig deeper, flame flares and you would be scarred or scalded
if you do not run fast enough

yes, the world would end in fire, with green eyed
ice fighting its way to the scenario as its curtain raiser
