    This entire topic gets my nomination for topic of the millenium.

    Thanks for the laughs!!
    Crazy, but that's how it goes
    Millions of people living as foes
    Maybe it's not too late
    To learn how to love, and forget how to hate

    My shirt may say "No Fear"
    But you'll find lots of it here
    My safety comes first
    My FD is the worst
    But it's ok 'cause they bring lots of beer

    "I'm a firefighter!" I'll often say
    I even keep my tools on display
    Not an axe or a hook
    But a coloring book
    Fight fire? "HA HA! NO WAY!"

    As I surf these fireman threads
    I feel a tingling in my head
    Sometimes I can't resist the urge
    From my brain to my fingers dumb things I do purge.

    All we hear is me, me, me
    There's BS posted to see
    I hope you're wearing a cup
    If you run into FyredUp
    Or else it will bleed when you pee.

    Default Taking a stab at some poetry

    Here I stand in the front yard
    Certificates in hand including my red card

    My turnout gear so crisp and clean
    The inside of a fire it's never seen

    I refuse to ever enter that house
    Even if it was to save my spouse

    Our citizens to us...their not worth much
    Our meager budget is my crutch

    I say to myself as I don my vest
    I wanna go home so F*Ä$ the rest

    *disclaimer*- this is not directed at any one person. If you think this is about you, then it's time to address it with your conscious.....

    There once was forum of old Crusty's
    Most of them old and musty
    You must go inside
    To do the job with pride
    Or else nobody will think you have gutsys
    Train to fight the fires you fight.

    As we approach the scene with only drivers
    I know there will be little chance of survivors

    My vest is donned, so yellow so bright
    With my officers hat, I feel like a knight

    Through the window I throw my FIT five
    Hoping this will maybe keep them alive

    Propped at the command post I shall stay
    Awaiting the response from AMA

    At some point, one would think he'd just give up. But nope, not ol' Lala...

    I moved down South from the great North East
    Where I swear--- I really fought the beast
    But now that I live way down South
    All I do is run my mouth

    As previously explained ....... from a Bond Tax dedicated only to fire apparatus and equipment such as PPE and SCBA.

    But never let the facts get in the way of a miss-statement.


    My VFD a new tanker and engine we're buyin'
    To use the funds otherwise the law we'd be bendin'
    But foul Fryed' screams
    As he questions our needs
    As he feels on trucks we should not be spendin'

    "Waiting for the response of the AMA" sorta sealed it.

    Your mooch-ual aid should get those rigs, since more wear is being put on their equipment in your first due than your own.
