    Blood Upon The Shield...

    A steal from somewhere else...

    For the Officers/Deputies that have fallen in the past couple days...

    Blood Upon The Shield
    Confrontation in an alley. The Centurion does not yield.
    But this time the good guy loses;
    there is blood upon the shield.

    And the mournful sounds of bagpipes
    play out across the land,
    drowned out by the sobs of a lonely young wife
    and a child too young to understand.

    While the killer pleads his case in court,
    the thin blue line is one man short.
    And we're one step closer to society's fall;
    another cop's name is engraved on the wall.

    Another state funeral, with an army in blue,
    and we know it could've been me and it could've been you.
    We all look ahead to what the future has in store,
    front line troopers in a country that's at war.

    At war with itself and at war with its cops and we're
    out there every day 'cause the battle never stops.
    It's not the way it is on TV shows or like
    we learned in school; no cool music in the background,
    no playing by the "rules;"

    We're disillusioned warriors,
    but for right we'll always strive.
    We just pray that at the end of our stress-filled day
    we'll get back home alive.

    You stand out on the corner
    ignoring the insults and the stares,
    close to the point of believing that no one really cares,
    when a six year-old boy walks over after watching
    you for awhile, reaching out to shake your hand,
    on his face a friendly smile.

    To him you are a hero,
    a protector of our land, and he wants
    to learn about you,
    as a cop and as a man.

    And when he asks you why your badge is covered
    by a black elastic band,
    tell him about our Brother
    A cop who made a stand.

    That was perfectly written. Sad and moving also. For over a year now I have always had a black band on my badge as unfortunatly, there is always an officer falling somewhere in the country.
