Another one off the list. Running out of time.

I’m alone
Wearing my Nationals cap
Toying with this
Inscrutable podcast app
I was on the Yellow line
A man got on wearing Calvin Kleins
And, sodden with cologne,
The bastard sat next to me
I remember the smell of burning wires near
A smoky haze filled up the car  
The cologne guy then exploded into flames
Riding on the Metro
Calmly I stood
And opened my new backpack
And removed
A firefighter’s gloves and mask 
Thank god mother bought these 
Fire retardant shirts and jeans
She said “Never ride the train
Without your Vesuvius gear”
I remember someone say the words: Safety Surge
Like reentry on Apollo 13
Sure seemed more like a passenger purge
Riding on the Metro

Agree with Jason on the storytelling. And the sound effects are great - especially the explosion. You gonna be able go into the summer with a clean jingle ideas board?

The storytelling is great and this sounds like you had a time machine to bring this directly from the 80s - which is awesome.
