Protect And Serve Poem by Donal Mahoney

Protect And Serve



On Saturday mornings
several bowed citizens
gather on the sidewalk

outside the clinic
to read the Bible and pray.
Staff peer through curtains

afraid one of them might
stop a client coming in
for her procedure

despite two policemen
guns in their holsters
stationed outside.
