The Final Inspection

The policeman stood faced his God, which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining .
Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now police man. How shall I deal with you? Have you always turned the other cheek? To My church have you been true?"
The policeman 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, because the streets are awful tough.
But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep.......
Though I worked a lot overtime
When the bills got just 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 unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Amongst the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to claim their fear.
If you've a place for me here,
Lord, it needn't be to grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't .... I understand.
There where silence all around the throne
Where the saints have often trod.
As policeman waited quietly,
For his Judgment of his God.
"Stop for now, policeman,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk the beat on Heaven's street,
You've done your time in hell."
