Candle in the Wind

What exactly is this supposed to mean "sir"?
Who would put a candle in the wind where it would just blow out?
Doesn't seem very responsible.
Can't you put it in a bag?
Or put one of those cones around it?
Protestors seem to do it all the time, plus they are often marching creating more wind and their candles seem ok...
I guess you should just plan ahead for the wind even if it is not there to begin with
or better yet don't light a fucking candle where there is wind in the first place.

***Booming voice** "("Picture Earl Jonesish circa Star Wars IV")"
It is meant as a metaphor for how fragile life is and for living it with reckless abandon.
***Boom Ends***
But life isn't fragile?
It is actually pretty damn resilient.
I can break every bone in your body and your body will heal itself.
You can over come all types of stuff and a race of people living reckless would have become extinct.

I mean isn't a candle a good enough comparison for life all ready?
Burning down every day.
We are all candles and we don't know the size..ohh I just gave myself chills that was awesome.

PS I still like the song
PSS If we can make a wind proof zippo why not a wind proof candle?

We can make a candle that doesn't blow out, but they wouldn't cost .95 cents and sting when your lover pours it all over your body baby!!!

So Rocketstar said.
