A Wee Poem.
I believe It was written by;
An ex policeman.
|Watch out there's a copper about|
I have been where you fear to be,
I have seen what you fear to see,
I have done things what you fear to do,
All these things, I have done for you.
I am the man you lean upon,
The man you cast your scorn upon,
The man you bring your troubles to,
All these men, I have been to you,
The man you ask to stand apart,
The man you feel should have no heart,
The man you call the "man in blue",
But I'm just a man, just like you,
And through the years, I've come to see,
I'm not what you ask of me.
So take these handcuffs and this baton,
Will you take it? Will anyone?
And when you watch a person die,
And hear a battered baby cry,
Then do you think that you can be,
All the things you ask of me?
I'm just a man like you.
Didn't he do well? He's certainly got my vote.
