THE JUDGEMENT
The officer stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining,
Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, Officer,
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To my church have you been true?"
The officer squared his shoulders and said,
"No Lord, I guess I ain't, Because those of us who carry badges can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays,
And at times my talk was rough,
And sometimes I've been violent,
Because the streets are tough.
But I never took a penny,
that wasn't mine to keep,
Though I worked a lot of ovetime
When the bills got too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help
Though at times I shook with fear,
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept an unmanly tear."
"I know I don't deserve a place among the people here,
they never wanted me around,Except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me Lord, it needn't be so grand,
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't, I'll understand."
There was silence all around the throne,
Where the saints often trod,
As the officer waited quietly,
For the judgement of his God.
"Step forward now, officer,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on heaven's streets,
You've done you time in hell."

God Speed and Rest In Peace Officer Durman
