Flame

How do you put out

a burning cross in the dark starless night of Kentucky?

Do you take away the oxygen and smother it with your own burning heart?

Do you douse it with the waters of righteousness?

Do you remove the lighter and let it smolder till the last ember is snuffed out?

If you wait, it will burn the forest down and we will have no place to live.
