Poem I wrote- i'm not great at these things- did it for a college course, thought I'd share.


 


That Rookie you love to hate.

Having no patience and unwilling to wait.

The one who watches all the cop shows.

And really doesn't know.

That one who gets so exicited to run code lights you think they peed.

The one who jumps out of the car and cant wait to take the lead.

Ready to take anyone on, no matter their size.

You think to yourself- this kid aint too wise.

They are way too ambitious for there own good.

You look them up and down and knock on wood,

Please Lord, let me not be this kid's FTO.

Because he won't survive if I run the show.

This Kid just doesn't really know.

Know what this career they choose will bring them.

It may be a life long dream or a job because of need.

Being a cop will tear you in two,

You see what people really can do.

From the horrors of a family in disarray

To seeing a childs lifeless body where it lay.

Tears will come and dry away.

You will see how drugs affect ones body and soul.

It will pain you to see the inoncent suffer

and to let the knowingly guilty go.

BUt this Rookie cant see through the their shinny new badge

polished boots and other gun belt do-dads.

That they will see the very worst in people,

but also they very best.

They will get critized and attacked.

They will be the shoulder to cry but also the rock to stand.

They will be what society needs.

They will be far more then they ever possibly could see.

BUt you remember when you were once that Rookie and grin.

It's just the cycle repeating again.

That's cool ern.  It does ring true to the heart.  Kind of like watching babies.  You wait on that first step.  Then, the rest is history.  There's also a personal satisfaction illustrated in your writing.  Every cop goes thru it, and later (if living) tells those just starting out, "Ya-kno, I remember when I was starting out with my FTO, but when I went thru it, it was tough!"  Not like the way you guys have it today.  I had to work traffic at an intersecttion that was six feet deep in snow.  Without a jacket or gloves even!  Wind blowing, 15 degrees, and I loved-it!  You guys today.  Well, I don't know.  We'll just have to see how you do this month.  Lemme see your hat.  And watch their mouths fall open when you send it out the window of the patrol car driving down the street. 


Just kidding.  Stuff like that never happens.  Does it???????????????????????????

Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today’s world do not have.

That was great. Amazing poem. It really does come full circle. Cool.
