Fire can’t burn

That which is already ablaze.

How do you destroy

That which rises from the ashes,

like a phoenix made of flames?

She can be delayed

But never destroyed,

And note that she is

Easily annoyed.

She is nice, not by default

But by choice,

You don’t want to make her

Choose otherwise.
