A red- blue ribbon: symbol of the International Fire Fighters Day
Fire, air, water, land and space-five elements of nature
Created by the Almighty to take care of future!
The Omnipotent, Omnipresent and Omniscient
Keeping each and everything in its place quite potent!
Nature’s conspiracy- forest fire difficult to contain
Devastation ensues- brave men in uniform struggle
Nilgiris, Uttarakhand recent-modern technology
Can not stand the onslaught of nature alas- tragedy!
Man’s ignorance and ego, foolishness and fate keep them
At places inconvenient and holocaust results!
Fire and floods, cyclones and whirlwinds- nature’s fury seen
Forces and people help to fight and save the world quite keen!
Fire fighters fight not only with fire-but hasten to help
In all circumstances tragic- may be an awful snake
May be a person drowning in a lake or well -earth quake
Service minded brigade they are to be honored with cake!
“Fire brigade’ –Fire Fighters a brave set of warriors help
Sacrificing their lives many a time- pity in pulp
For the world to pay its respects and keep the force happy
Their day is today – let us salute- and be in safety!
Firefighters’ Day remembers the dedication, gallantry and need for firefighters from around the globe.
