Daredevil

There are those who walk on burning coals
To get their fix of thrills,
While others jump from speeding planes
(Which all too often kills).
But I’ve got something more extreme
To give my life its zing.
I simply have my residence
In Kansas in the spring!

It’s a perilous activity,
As risky as it gets.
Will the twisters wipe us out today?
Step up and place your bets!
It’s a rush of pure adrenaline
That doesn’t cost a thing,
The adventure sport that’s known as life
In Kansas in the spring!

So keep your skis and bungee cords.
They’re sissified and lame!
You think you’ve danced with danger?
It’s my freakin’ middle name!
You’ll shun the wimpy wingsuits
And the tepid thrills they bring
When you’ve got the massive balls to live
In Kansas in the spring!

  1. I’ve never lived in Kansas but posted a link to “Daredevil” to a former KS resident who has already clicked Like.

  2. Oops, I didn’t say posted a link on Facebook. Just checked the Facebook site to see whether a Scott Emmons resides on it, and more than one popped up, including one in Kansas. Perhaps that’s you?

    Probably is. I know there are several Scott Emmonses in the country, but I’d be surprised to meet another one in Kansas.
