Greek Fire

   
Chemists mystified 

     even to this day

Byzantine recipe conquered at sea

when propelled

     forceful streams of fire

Greek fire could not be quenched by water

     rather it ignited further

when propelled  

     forceful streams of fire

       Fueled by force

         air and water
