    Men Behind The Badge a new poem that I am posting here for my brothers in blue...Michael.

    Men Behind The Badge

    Behind the badge there stands a man
    He makes decisions as best he can
    The streets are changing before his eyes
    He wears the badge because he’s wise

    Not just anyone can become a true blue cop
    He must be of high integrity his honesty he cannot swap
    He stands alone in arrest sometimes he must make
    He relies on Gods protection his soul not to take

    Men behind the badge take risks that run so high
    Decisions he must make sometimes they make him cry
    If he has to use deadly force the courts put him on trial
    In the face of danger he’s expected to be meek and mild

    He must be honest and always fair in every case
    He must callous himself to contend with things he’ll face
    When faced with potential death he’s expected to react
    If he uses force he must be careful to deploy and be exact

    He responds everyday to serve, keep peace and protect
    If he is a Sheriff his services are one that people elect
    Policemen come in varied sizes but still keep the peace
    They take criminals into custody till their time of release!

    Hi there my friend! Just droppin' by to say Hellooooo!! I was Pleasantly surprised to read such a wonderful poem. Didn't know your are such a talented man with words. I take a shot at now and then. I have always like creative writing and it's becoming a lost art to just write a personal letter. I suppose Internet has taken front seat. But I still enjoy writing. God keep you and your family in his care. Back atcha soon. Margaret****

    WOW, Mike. Not only are you talented with words, but you really get to the heart of the job with these words. I agree with your poem 100%...people don't see cops as regular men and women, all they see is the uniform. Thank you for your gift, my friend. Romans CH 13 it is when I put the kids to bed tonight. Thanks so very much for your friendship...I have a feeling we'll be soing a lot more "talking" in the future and that's fine by me. You are wise and insightful and you already have my respect, Sir.

    A Poem I Dedicate To All My Brother and Sister Police Officers:

    COPS

    They’re out there on the streets working hard everyday
    To protect and serve the public in their loyal kind of way
    Taking all the risk is the job these men and women do
    Everything they can to preserve life and property for me and you

    Not just anyone can patrol the streets and wear a badge and gun
    This job is very risky and requires making decisions not much fun
    In the real world things can go wrong and get complicated and bad
    Some cops get killed making arrest of criminals this is very sad

    In the movies actors portray cops on the streets risking their life
    The actors get as many takes as it takes to get the scene just right
    But in the real world “COPS” get one take and if it goes wrong
    They’re fatal statistics and must live with the decision that’s made

    Sure they’re cops but human beings too; they are the men in blue
    They place their very life on the line everyday for me and you
    They’re out there patrolling the streets to protect us and keep us free
    Fighting the drug dealer and terrorist cell in their daily plight
    They’re men and women and carry out a service a constant fight

    My friends what I’m telling all of you, they are cops like me and you
    Accept they wear a badge and a gun and patrol day and night
    Keeping criminal’s in line and protecting our human right
    Never fail to respect the job they do, it’s all for me and you!
