The Flame Thrower

His flames are a wicked blast
of summer-time heat, the fierce inferno
like they captured lava and put it
in a tub and gas tank, much more than
the blue Rhino gas tank
to power your grill. When you have it
on your shoulders, it is like
carrying a whole volcano. You feel
when you let loose the fire beast
that you can turn Mt. Everest
into the Lochness lake. When you
unlock the flame thrower, it's like
20 elephants just go off your back.
