Where Diogenes Threw Down His Lamp

A lamp won't reveal the honest;
You need a light for all to see.
Set on fire all the walls
And make one beacon of the world.
Those who cling will burn with,
Leave the rest to find each other.
Then in the eyes 't is reflected,
Of those who turn not away.
Some things are destined,
What is flammable must burn:
The whole world caught on fire,
From this single act of arson.
