I’m not going to give any long-winded blah, blah, blah, tonight, because this is a poem that is a tribute to some of the bravest, and most selfless people that God has ever created…The Firefighter. We lost a dear friend earlier this year and he was recently honored, along with another firefighter from my hometown of Framingham, Massachusetts, (and firefighters from all over the country and Canada) at the Firefighter’s Memorial in Colorado, and I thought that this may be appropriate at this time.
May we thank God for them all.
The one and only reason,
that Hell still burns today,
is because, the firefighter,
reports the other way.
For if God wished to extinguish,
the roaring fires of Hell,
then He’d send in a “Ladder,”
and then He’d sound five bells.
They’d put out fast, that fire,
and maybe save some souls.
For, from now until eternity,
they’re forever, on the “Rolls!”
