    There once was a dude from La.
    Who posted BS everyday

    Though most thought him wrong
    And he wouldn't last long

    He just simply would not go away

    If you live in down in the parish
    and your family you love and cherish
    Don't have a house fire
    you'll be in straits very dire
    he will stand in the yard and you'll perish

    If you happen upon the bayou you'll find

    A man who's legend has grown

    Not through actions at work
    Extinguishing fires on his own

    But sadly its in his own mind

    Fire safety he claims to teach
    But its always the same tired speech
    "DONT GO INSIDE"
    "YOU MIGHT GET FRIED"
    Over and over you hear him screech

    It darkened the sky on the brightest day

    That cloud of smoke so big

    He rallied his troops

    To answer the call

    And ran the other way

    Beautiful. I only know the one about the guy from Nantucket.
    The fire service is about service to our fellow man.

    That guy from Nantucket evidently has large enough cojones, in relation to other parts, and does not have the problems that pertain to this subject's lack of intestinal fortitude. So goes the rumor.

    There once was a man from Nantucket
    that fought structure fires with a bucket
    He said ,"its not much"
    I don't have fire hose and such
    But at least I don't stand there and say -uck it

    And again, how are some members of this forum not fixated with me?

    Pretty sad group.

    Don't be so hard on yourself. If I hated you, I wouldn't even bother.

    We deal with this clown LA,
    Who praises his hayseeds all day,
    But when flames start to flicker
    No one can run quicker
    In precisely the opposite way!

    Nice work boys your talents are amazing!!
    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

    No training? Well you can still ride
    We won't even be going inside
    Your gut is unsightly
    Your turnouts fit tightly
    You fill my bad ticker with pride!

    The parish is asleep because of of great tire
    And guarded by men who show up and inspire
    So lay down your heads
    All snug in your beds
    And pray the smoke gets you before the fire

    I love my green safety vest
    With it, I feel like the best
    Although I'm a coward
    I'm feeling empowered
    As long as I don't go in with the rest

    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
