Porland Bureau of Police (OR)

"Who loves the Warrior?"

Not those he has fought for,
For those he has fought for have seen
The stain of battle on his garment.

They draw back when they learn of the deed
He has done to keep them safe.

It is better for them to keep a distance from the warrior
So the stain will not spoil the perception of their dignity.

Yet the warrior continues to give his all.

He must fight the battles to keep those souls he loves
Free from harm and free from the stain of evil,
For he is a warrior,
The only shield between good and evil,
It is only the warrior who loves the warrior.
