Anybody

Cat walking away explosion fire

Perhaps you think you’re special,
But before you flaunt your status,
Remember
It only takes one match
Out of the box of thousands,
All exactly the same,
To kindle the flame.
How does that frost your cupcake?
You were simply next in line;
Anybody could be that guy
