A B-52 pilot hot-dogging one day
Took air show viewers' breath away

By laying into a 90 degree bank
Right over the Air Base's water tank,

He really gave the audience a scare
When that man o' war fell out of the air,

Pilot and crew -- all were lost,
The public taxpayers paid the cost,

It's never worth it to break the rules,
You may wind up dead like daredevil fools.
