April 4th…“DID A CHILDHOOD IGNORANCE ALMOST LEAD TO DISASTER?”
POEM – “Beware of Super Can!!” by N. Elliott Noorlun
Little did I realize, When I was but a boy,
That aerosol cans with added heat, Were really not a toy.
So when I took out, The trash to burn,
A powerful lesson, I soon would learn.
The chore of burning trash was mine,
So I’d head for the woods, And I THOUGHT would be fine,
To pour it all on, In one big heap,
Then light the match, And watch the flames creep,
Up the paper, wood, And all such junk,
But in there was hiding, A metal hunk.
The fire was going, Well and good,
So I moved away, From where I stood.
When halfway back, To the house I heard,
An explosion that caused, My blood to curd!!
I cautiously crept, Back to the scene,
And viewed a spray can, Ugly and mean.
The heat from the fire, Caused it to EXPLODE!
His angels had moved me, To safety’s abode.
It’s best to ask questions, Of what you’re to do,
So you don’t become target, Of a giant KERBLEW!!! 😉
