The Eternal Flame

The Zoroastrians bequeathed us many gifts, and damnations. Good v. Evil the chief among them in all regards. Before Zoroaster, everything was a more mellow shade of grey.
Here it is - a fire that has burned for over 4K years. Think of it - well before Jesus, Confucius, Buddha and L. Ron Hubbard - men have maintained this flame in the name of a God.
Word - Spring Break at the Eternal Flame.
Trip your mind in the flickering flames, yo.
Thousands and thousands of years old. Think of it - before writing existed, this flame burned...
In a sweet piece of real estate, of course.

That long valley there must have once been filled with trees. Stupid eternal flame.

Heh. Didn't think of that, but it's probably true. It ain't easy being eternal.
