The Protectors - Poem by louis rams

police officers and firefighters
deserve an applause
at times they are fighting a loosing cause.
they fight this battle every day
and they do it for little pay.

they risk their lives for you and me
so that we live our lives carefree.
they take away our stress and strains
and have so little to gain.

a little smile, a friendly thank you
for all the things that they do.
walking the streets, or in their cars
always close, never far.

how many of us can say
that into a burning building
we would stay
to save the lives of others
who we do not know.
perishing in a fire
is not the way to go.

police officers stopping
the crimes in the streets
as they patrol their scheduled beat.
going into a house with family abuse
wondering if it'll be of any use.

let us give thanks to all who serve.

including the medical fields
without their concerns
we would not heal.

we thank you from the bottom
of our hearts
for you have become
a very big part.
