A - Is for answers that some may request;
I'll give just a few but perhaps not the best.
B - The best wishes to our interests so keen;
Much success and good luck to our gas magazine.
C - Could be crank with a crook here and there;
To be used with caution, please handle with care.
D - The determination in each search that we make;
For another old relic and the time that it takes.
E - To the engines and the makers of yore;
And to all who restore them that they will run once more.
F - Is the fly wheels, some large and some small;
To see them spin 'round is a pleasure to all.
G - Makes the gas these engines we feed;
Mixed up with some air and we got what we need.
H - Could be the hours it takes and more than a few;
To get these old timers to again run like new.
I - Is ignition to fire the charge we compress;
A good hot spark and she runs at her best.
J - The junker all rusty and old;
Each one that we find is like the striking of gold.
K - To spell kerosene on which some engines run fine;
I'd feed a good grade of gas to those prizes of mine.
L - Lubrication or oil as we say:
It keeps all running smoothly and friction away.
M - As in magneto, high tension or low;
Most engines must have 'em before they're ready to go.
N - To the newcomer and to this hobby the best;
May all of your efforts be crowned with success.
O - Stands for oil cups of bright shiny brass;
Just keep them a dripping and the bearings will last.
P - Is for paint and this is a must;
To restore that new finish and battle the rust.
Q - The question that crosses my mind;
Where may I look for more pleasure than from these gassers of mine ?
R - Is the rust, it's known to all;
If given a chance it's the engine's downfall.
S - To the spark, come it from breaker or plug;
It's got to be there for your plaything to chug.
T - The throttle, the speed to control;
Open up wide and then watch her roll.
U - Unselfish effort and long may it last;
In restoring old timers from out of the past.
V - Is the valves, there's two always been;
The exhaust to get out, the new charge to get in.
W - Must be for water, in the hopper's the spot;
For without this coolant she's sure to run hot.
X - To my exit from this printed page;
Here's wishing you success whatever your age.
Y - Is yours truly, no poet is he;
After reading this far I'm sure you'll agree.
Z - Is for zero, all things have their ends;
Here's wishing you luck with those engines, my friends.
