Internal Decay Sources

Fire blue rakes itself over its coals
White hot to ash as the inner water balloon pops
Sure, there is fuel
Yes, oxygen's necessary

But a pungent source of decay
Is the self-made demon
Pulling itself up by the bootstraps
Crawling across the ladders of the soul

To wreak havoc on the I-infrastructure
Roads crumble
Bridges fall
Water pipes spout tears

What the central awareness system misses
Will corrode, compound damage
Weakening, making susceptible
To ravages otherwise irrelevant

Flash light on the cracks
Strobe fissures into solidity
Knowing makes the fix
Responses self-organize
