Trade School Sonnets - 85-000316 Filter-Regulator-Lubricator Unit

O, 85-000316 Filter-Regulator-Lubricator Unit, how do I admire your will and authority! How do I seek to emulate your imposing love of regularity!

For, in the throes of this life's wild tumult, do not all souls seek to lessen the blows to the heart, and thereby make each sunrise a new comfort to behold? Yes, I do often share your wish, 85-000316 Filter-Regulator-Lubricator Unit.

But soft, no. Yours is a fool's folly, 85-000316 Filter-Regulator-Lubricator Unit. He who strives to make each day the same, and labors only for uniformity of gaseous provision of well-oiled air, toils in vain.

I know you, 85-000316 Filter-Regulator-Lubricator Unit, and you know that we lie to all mankind when we lie to ourselves. Look in your primary bell housing. You know it to be true. And I would not have it otherwise, for what worth is a life without the storm to cherish the daisy? What value is the day without night to make the morning seem the brighter?

I thank you for the vigor of your efforts, 85-000316 Filter-Regulator-Lubricator Unit. Yet, let me advise you thus: guard not your heart from irregularity and un-forseen portents. Your heart is a valve seal, and it is a wear item, available from a local distributor. We can replace it.

You guard yourself overmuch, 85-000316 Filter-Regulator-Lubricator Unit, and I will open your pressure regulator to the full, for only in this way can we savor all that each day brings us. And so must we all fully open our valves, so.

Ah, what a lovely Lubrication Sonnet. And quite the risqué photo accompanying it - with both bowls polished & exposed! But yet, it is art, is it not? Cheers P.A.G.! for your wanton, unabashed mechanical display!

Ever yours, Clampy
