Men and women in green, brown, or blue,
to the badge and code we are true.
Of us you seldom think,
while your lives are in the pink.

We serve come rain, snow, or sun,
to save a life, maybe draw our gun.
Performing task's that most don't want,
patrolling streets --- the lawless haunt.

Yes it's true and somewhat sad,
some break the code and do go bad.
You poke fun and make some jokes,
but most os us are just good hometown folks.

Don't think of us as men and women of steel,
without a heart, or that we do not feel.
We know joy and also fear,
we laugh, we love, and we even shed a tear.

We have friend's, home's, kid's, hubby's and wives,
but for strangers risk we risk our lives.
Next time you see one of us, stop -- say thanks,
to man or woman that fill our ranks.
