Inner warning

The more that inner warning sign flashes
the more you’re attracted like a moth to the flame.
How many phoenixes do you want from the ashes?
Aren’t you getting tired of this destructive game?

– Felix Morgenstern (© 2008)

Missed the formal point again by presenting neither limerick nor haiku for Mad Kane’s This is a warning. Contentwise, however, I'm on target, I think.

Thank you, Juliet!

(By the way, I liked your haiku very much, in case that did not come through in my comment.)

Why is it, do you suppose, that people are drawn to what destroys them?
