Under Pressure

No one knew what to do.

The pipes shook as if only a feather from bursting.

It promised a nuclear meltdown.

That was till the technician arrived to save the day,

Causing all to cheer as they stood back & watched.

He looked @ the crowd o’ controls

& held his index up

’Fore punching it into the red button in the middle.

Everyone’s hearts stopped.

& then everything exploded into a fireball.

The technician was proclaimed a hero,

For doing what none other could do:

Finally caused the power plan to erupt

& gave them all superpowers.
