Disaster

Simmering under a low fire,
                         slowly rising to the surface
making no noise,
                       of it's impending advance

Hastening suddenly 
                       as it reaches the summit
raging loudly,
                    pouring out in a split

Oh! haven't we all experienced,
                        the agony of being late, just by a second 
in simmering down the flame,
                         just as the milk rose to fame

A perfect kitchen spoiler, 

                           nothing short of a disaster
was just waiting to happen,
                          surely a ploy by the Heaven!

----------------------------------------------------
Who has not cried over spilt milk?.It definitely spells disaster on a perfect morning.

  4. Stand there a minute or two watch the milk arise.
    Dont let it bloat its ego so
    Much that it disappoints
