2012 April PAD Challenge: Day 28

For today's prompt, write a problem poem. The poem could be about a problem the narrator is suffering through, or someone else's problem. Or a math problem.

Here's my attempt:

"Still Burning"

And that's a problem
because I don't have any water
to put out the flames
or a flue
for the smoke
shooting out my mouth
without a way
to take it back.
