This Shakespearean sonnet is another excerpt from my commonplace book:
The V.F.D., we are a noble group
Concerned with many villainous affairs.
The misery, it threw us for a loop;
We mostly volunteer because we're scared.
Our mission is as righteous as the day---
To rid the world of destructive fire.
If arsonists and villains get their way,
Then chances are we never will retire.
Of secrets we would like to keep a few;
Much agonizing truth we must restrain,
And many we shall even keep from you
Until the world is quiet once again.
The villainy of man is what we fear,
And that, my friend, is why we volunteer.
