Dangers not my middle name

 

Some people look for danger ,preferring

to live in the 'last lane.'

 

Some people live like a maniac, detesting

anything moderate or plain.

 

Some people like to go sky diving ,or dangle

from a hundred foot rope.

 

But thatís not the kind of life for me.

I donít want to be that kind of dope.

 

Nope, I rather just watch them all on the TV as they

endanger themselves out there alone.

 

Iíd much prefer to watch them in complete safety,

snuggled up by the fire side at home.
