Responsible
For the prevention
Detection of crime
Maintenance
Of public order
Nowhere
Says
Fear
Consternation
Discomposure
Is part
That description
Yet
This is a
Combination of
Something
That is
Building up
Only to
Boil over
Into something
Most deadly
A legalized killer
Playing
Judge
Jury
Executioner
In the street
Of our community
Putting targets
On the chest
Of people
Killing anyone
That they deem
Not human
We all
Can do
Without this
Melancholy
We need protection
Not
Twitchiness
Embedded
In the DNA of
A police officer
A peace officer
A soldier of
Community
We need
Officers
Who have
A calm mind
A steady hand
Being a
People person
With training
To see everyone
As humans
Not bullseyes
Moving amongst
Our community
Having that abilty
To deal with
People
And
Be
A peace protector
Not someone
Part of
The tyranny
Looking for revenge
Instant justice
By riddling
Unarmed
People
In the streets
With bullets
Will be
A beginning
No one is
An animal
A carcass
Needing
Collecting
Made as a
Trophy
In anyone’s mind
Worn on someone’s chest
Placed in their record
As a legalized
Good shooting
It is
A Killing
A Murder
By any meaning
Guns should be
Last resort
Majority of
Situations
Can be
Have been
Solved
Without killing
Look at
The prison system
Full to capacity
Getting fuller
By the minute
How do you
Suppose
They
Got there
Alive
Breathing
They were
Arrested
Convicted
And
Imprisoned
Either
Receiving
Justice
Or
Injustice
By the system
But alive
Nonetheless
Living to
Fight
Within the system
