Bernard Shaw

Cursed Cop. - Poem by Bernard Shaw

So you cursed the cop that stopped you while speeding,

He spoiled your day with a monetary fine.

At an earlier accident he helped the causalities that were bleeding,

He got them all to a hospital just in time.

That Cop was doing his duty you know,

He has seen all kinds of crime and criminals too.

To be helpful at an accident he is not slow,

What’s more he has more than enough other work to do.

Family quarrels where violence prevails,

Faces of young children filled with fear.

I won’t go into the gory horrible details,

But it is that very same Cop that is called do you hear?

Rules are made by Governments and courts,

The Cop has to see that they are obeyed.

His is a job filled with dangers fraught,

He is always on the look out sometimes with nerves that are frayed.

So don’t curse the Cop that is obeying the law,

Be polite perhaps it is your life the next to be saved.

Give him credit for a job well done for sure,

An ordinary cop you are deep in his debt for you his life he braved.
