In all walks of life

They show what they're worth

As nobles of action

And not by birth

You cannot foretell

Who'll be for real

Not until challenged

Do they show their zeal

They go into fire

And under the rubble

while most of us run

They go looking for trouble

And what do they want

In return for the danger

Is not a thing more

Than to help out a stranger

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Now perhaps young people can aspire to be someone important, like a fireman.
