When you strike a match in South Africa,
be sure to strike it just hard enough,
since only one in three has much of a head.
(Sulfur, they use, there as here, in safety matches.)
I think the wood is also soft. Common sense says
things go better when travelers learn the rules.
When you’re away from home, it’s easy to misfire.
