Fire and Ice


Fire and Ice don't seem meant to please
One can burn and the other freeze

Whenever they touch they cannot stop fighting
(Which I think is rather frightening)

Fire melts ice into water
Which takes out fires; a cycle not altered

But things are not always as they seem
For when hot water meets fire, they start to make steam

And steam powers all sorts of contraptions
From propellers to engines to boats in action

So I think it would be suffice
To say you should not misjudge fire and ice
