Roses are red, Violets are blue. Here’s a St. Valentine’s Day Safety poem for you.
For you I will swoon, Your heart’s my election. For your love I don’t need Fall prevention and protection.
I want to be near you; In the same place. I’d like to be with you In a cozy confined space.
Our love makes me shout; scream; Yell in elation. Our love’s so outspoken, I use hearing conservation.
Our passion will soar, Such sparks it emits. We will soon need to get us Some hot work permits.
Our love will not sputter, Our selves will not clash. Our love it’s electric Like a deadly arc flash.
The heat of our love grows, It will never be less. If things keep getting hotter, We’ll suffer heat stress.
Our love will not struggle, Our lives will not mire. Our love will explode, Like a combustible dust fire.
On this Valentine’s Day, I pledge you all this. Just be sure to love safely, And all will be bliss.
Happy Valentines Day from Community Emergency Response Volunteers of the Monterey Peninsula
