    Post Dedication

    Just something that I wrote on why I volunteer.

    It's oh seven thirty
    When I roll out of bed,
    My face is still dirty
    Smoke & soot fill my head.

    I turn on the shower
    To clean up for work,
    It's gonna be tough
    Cause' my whole body hurts.

    Just three hours sleep
    To rest bloodshot eyes,
    "Why do you do it?"
    "DEDICATION" is my reply.

    Some think I am crazy
    They call me insane,
    To battle the "Dragon"
    In sun, snow & rain.

    It's not just the "Big One"
    That fuels my desire,
    Theres more to volunteering
    Than just fighting fire.

    I love the kids faces
    And the look in their eyes,
    When they see the big engines
    And those "fireman guys".

    Take care, stay safe, & stay low.

    Applause, applause, applause. Great poem. Can I carry it in my wallet for the quick and easy response to the question of "why?"
