Flaming Turkey or Ode to Differential Relays

A fun poem from excitement today at work.  Was called in on my day off.  A suicidal turkey caused problem in a substation today.  I would post a photo of the bird, but better judgment says don't do it.

Flaming Turkey or Ode to Differential Relays

When day doesn't go as planned,
Interrupted and kicked the can.
Turkey committed suicide,
Interrupting electricity in death's glide.

Erupted in fire,
Dead before hit the ground.
Poor turkey in different fryer,
Relays worked so carcass found.

One big bird disrupts so many,
Lights don't turn on.
Inspect the equipment,
Test the substation.

In memory to differential relays,
A carcass remains.
Anything else just a pile of goo,
That would remain unclaimed.
