I wonder if it is hotter
On the fourth floor of hell
Than the third. Or second.
No doubt the first is warm enough,
Housing, as it does, the inferno.

But the second, or higher?
Think about it.
Heat rises, as a rule.
The full wrath of a flame is in the tip.

One thing is certain,
To do it right you need tiers.
Elevation. It stands to reason.
Controlled, long-term roasting means levels.
