The Protectors - Poem by Michael Jenkins

Always there, but not overreaching
Stepping in only when needed
They stay just within sight
Waiting, watching
for any little clue of distress
Ready to pounce
Far away, yet always within reach
they are the enforcers
No judge, no jury could stop them
Civilized, yet untamed
always there to defend
could anyone ask for more?
This is their mission, for which they're perfectly suited
For which they volunteered
For which they are forever appreciated.
