    I just love how some members throw the term coward around.

    As I drive down this highway

    To another FDIC show

    I spy an overturned vehicle

    I ponder...shall I even slow?


    The flames they are closing

    On a child trapped by steel

    I tighten my already strenuous grip

    Upon the steering wheel


    This is not my jurisdiction

    Or even my first due

    I say this with conviction

    I know this to be true


    So as I pass this accident

    On my way to an extrication class

    I think, someone soon they will show up

    To save this lad or lass


    So I speed past still keeping alert

    At people staring as I go by

    It dawns on me that my choice of shirt

    Is the big department nearby


    Maybe they didn't notice

    My faded tee of blue

    Or the scads of fireman stickers

    That block out my rear view


    I didn't have my drops that day

    I say to ease my guilt

    I hope that when I express my way

    It doth no harm this hero I've built


    So as you read this yarn I've conjured

    Ask what you would do

    Would you stop to help the injured

    Or would you drive right through

    When I want your opinion I'll give it to you.
    Right now, clean the mud off your shoe.
    I know it must be hard,
    Standing out in the yard,
    But I believe that's all you can do.

    I was generalizing, what are you getting at? I believe I stated that this was a "yarn" that I "conjured" up. You hiding something there bub?

    Please show me where I made any indication that my lovely limerick was directed towards you.

    And I used "coward" because I couldn't think of anything that rhymes with "chicken****""

    I dont know which is worse-

    The fact that guys make rhymes about him being such a pathetic piece of schit, or the fact that his thinking is so obtuse that he doesn't realize that he is such a pathetic piece of schit.

    Can we do haikus too?

    The heat is searing,
    People screaming " Please help us!"
    Sorry, too unsafe.

    They aren't about him as far as I'm concerned. I draw my inspiration from ridiculous things posters have said on these boards.

    I'll try to think up some more after I get my Percocet refill

    once a pubed geek
    opened a door for a peek

    the room lit off
    and he said with a cough

    I think my sphincter just started to leak
