There was a sky diving instructor, Orchestrating each jump as conductor; Strapped to his chest, The student was pressed, Clutched to a raptor abductor. From South Carolina Chip Steele, A gentleman kind and genteel, Enjoyed what he did, It was hard to keep hid, Each jump holding its own appeal. A student, a first time contender To jumping, to Chip would surrender; Strapped to his chest To each other pressed Then leapt from the plane into splendor. The student soon noticed his teacher No longer was moving his features; His body was still, Not involved in the drill, Then prayed to his God and his preacher. Recalling his pre-flight instruction, Effected his speed’s quick reduction; The chute he deployed, To float overjoyed, Avoiding his certain destruction. Unconscious his teacher lay prostrate, CPR, though he tried, would be too late. Though a heart attack killed, The lesson fulfilled So the student still paid the full rate.
