Heroic Americans In Uniform
Uniformity is exemplified
by those wear the uniform
the fireman who courageously pried
the victim free...
from the wreckage of the storm.
The officers who are sworn
to serve and to protect
the citizens who have the responsibility
to observe and then to elect
the councilmen and the mayor
whose job it is to direct...
the operation of the city’s affairs.
But there are those in uniform
who uniformly cheat,
who on the coldest days
will steal all the heat!
These should be turned in by their peers
who are not afraid of being labeled a “snitch”
because this will enhance their careers
even if they have to switch!
Because while a crooked accountant
can embezzle all of the funds
a vicious dishonest cop
can fire all his guns
at those who are not guilty
of committing any crime,
or he can frame the innocent
into doing a lot of time.
But a heroic soldier will walk a whole mile
under sniper fire and rough terrain
to rescue a helpless woman and her child
from the enemy’s oppressive pain.
And most soldiers wear the uniform
with a sense of patriotic pride
and fortunately in Desert Storm
they were all on our side.
And now that
from a dictator’s murderous hand
our troops in uniform should be celebrated
when they return to their own home land.
And to all of those who proudly wear a uniform
and bring honor to their occupation
may all of their bosses uniformly increase
their rate of compensation!
