Don't try to re-start fire from a faded puff of smoke.
And give yourself some time to recover.

About what went wrong, or why,
For gods sake burn it- burn it quickly
Don't leave it lying around for others eyes to see
And for the dance line to start forming behind you:...

Just like children at christmas time
Always believe the world is organized solely around them;
