Police - Why A Blue Suit Doesn't Make You A Superman - Poem by Paul Warren

There was a time when I thought I was strong
And nothing could hurt me and I'd get along
They gave me this blue suit and it made me a superman
And I would always be able to handle everything in a plan

Then I met a parolee one night who was spitting on people not right
So we went up to him and questioned but he wanted to fight
He punched me in the face knocking me to the ground
And ran off into the night without looking around

So they took me to the hospital and they fused my neck
And so instead of a superman I'm now a wreck
The moral of this story is plain to see
Don't be complacent and think it can't happen to me

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I needed to write this one and get it out of my head. This is the reason I am now a trainer. Those that can't do anymore train.
