Fight Fire with Satire
by Alex Andy Phuong

Paper might possibly burn
At Fahrenheit 451,
But paper is not the only one
Capable of combustion
Because roasting people
Sounds devilish,
Yet pyromaniacs
Enjoy being maniacs,
And sometimes people
Are crazy enough
To refuse to accept reality,
And the post-modern world
Is sometimes a new reality
Stranger than satirical writing
