Police - South Australia Police Forsaken By Their Government. - Poem by Paul Warren

The police rarely protest an issue at all
Today we marched together so hear our call
We have been forsaken by our Government
And left to ponder why in our lament
It is hard for us to see why when injured
We are left to pay in a future mired

Our thoughts of what do you do
When in danger and defending too
The public in their need to be saved
We the police need to make such a decision grave
Do we stand by and wait for the danger to end
Or go in risking life and limb where a dice throw depends.
