Limits of Patience
Do not drive me
beyond my patience
have you not seen the signs?  

For quite some time now
I have been sitting
on a heap of gunpowder
with a fire raging inside me
which I have kept under control with much effort
as I do not wish you to get burnt

Stop now
and be careful
lest the world that you and I have built
explode and go up in flame!
