Back End Emissions



My back end emissions have yet to reach Point eight on the Richter Scale A magnitude that easily destroys big buildings Or drives locomotives off the rail Most of the time they're silent but deadly The kind that can make people mute I've also heard that a man in Kansas City Let one fly and it blew off his suit Now that's what I call a powerful emission Hope one day to blow a point eight I'll be able to rest with my life's work done Sure hope it doesn't trigger a quake! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Ah, yes, the infamous Richter levels, and do you think you would reach those high marks as a massive earthquake? Those back end emissions can be deadly, especially those silent burning ones! I'm sure you know what I'm talking about, if you know anything about back end emissions...I hate to admit it but I have had my share like anyone else! I truly loved reading this enlightening poem this evening! What a powerful full powered piece, Great Work!!

    Hubby Especially loves this one. Read my 'Along Came a Spider'... it's full of potty humor... Dragon IS a potty humor lover, too.
