Blue Collar Man. Poem by Gary Hembree

Here stands a blue collar man.
Shield on heart, gun near side.
Here stands a man, who took an oath to serve and protect.
At times he questions why, but at heart justice holds strong.
Here stands a man of sin, before the eyes of this blue collar man.
upon his feet does he see, an angel of grace.
This man of sin, raises his stained sinned hands.
Here stands a blue collar man, to serve and protect as said by oath.
Here stands a blue collar man, questioning why such grace should fall so soon?
To serve and protect, hand holds near side.
The man of sin buckles and weeps, forgive my sickness for I am weak.
Hand raises, gun up hammer back.
To serve and protect, it is said by the oath!
'She was beautiful, ' said the man of sin.
The air shatters, cracks like thunder!
Here stands a blue collar man, now becomes an angel of vengeance.
To serve and protect, as said by oath.
