Haiku Poem – 消防署

fire station
open public support
dollar pancakes

(Ben version)
こころいき パンケーキや く しょうぼうし

(Michiko version)
しょうぼうし しきん あつめ の あさ ごはん

On October 12th, I went to visit a fire station. The fire station held a pancake breakfast. This event helped the fire station to raise money. It also gave people a chance to meet the firemen and to see the inside of a fire station. Each person was charged five dollars for a plate of pancakes. A piece of sausage and a carton of milk was also included. The firemen even added chocolate chips to some pancakes. While at the station, I got to see where the firetrucks are parked. I also got to see where the firemen keep their uniforms and equipment. There is also a place for the firemen to sleep at the station as well as a kitchen for them to cook meals. I met several firemen and they seemed very nice. I was happy to support the firemen and the fire station.
