    Nicely envisioned

    The matchbox, by itself is not worrisome. Being in the pocket of man is terrifying (Report) Reply

    I asked my father during my childhood, what is a chain reaction of nuclear weapons? He replied, if a match stick in a match box is lit somehow, all the sticks are ignited and cause a heavy fire. Now when I read this great poem I miss my father. (Report) Reply
