House Fire

the day that the house burned down
neighbors watched and nodded
children jumped up and down
teenagers cheered from the sidelines
firemen rolled up their hoses
and offered their theories
but it soon became clear
that if two bodies rub together
with that much fury it creates heat
heat enough to burn the house down
but in the end all that was left was
cold ashes
