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!
