There Is No Harmless Fire

"And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell." James 3:6, the Lord's half brother, said that...

It is commonly whispered by the compulsive liar
Evil surmising..."Where there's smoke there's fire"
A hint of suspicion drug up from the mire
And sped all around like a jilted lover's ire.
To drag down and hurt is as devilish a desire
As a drug pusher's dope or a prostitute's hire.
Gossip is a seller and if you are a buyer
You may buy a spark but pay much higher.
For a spark is a forest fire awaiting a defyer
To ignite a pine straw and burn a forest entire.
So think before you handle that little 220 wire
Which has bolts of volts but no smoke does require
Cause you can bet your boots... there lies a fire.
Now if you touch it and become a sky flyer
Let's hope there awaits you a heavenly choir
Singing your song... "There is no harmless fire". 
Yes, I said that... Rayburn Blair
