Nutso



Steeplejacks are nutso! What more is there to say I guess the lure of big money Would certainly come into play But not for a million trillion Normally not afraid of heights But these guys are totally bonkers Watching them's a scary sight They've proved to be ruddy fearless Height never makes them cringe Loonies from the very word go I surely would come unhinged Give them props it sure takes guts Or a lack grey matter upstairs Without them, no big skyscrapers They're completely nutso I swear! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Yes, I agree. I am afraid of height so I totally think they are nuts. Some people like the thrill of it. Just like people in the circus walking on a line. Don't know how they do it. Crazy.
