An ode to law enforcement

What is a cop?
Sworn to protect civilians,
They enforce our laws!

Then people why?!
Why do we destroy their property,
why the threats?
It solves nothing!

Yes, a small handful are bad...
but most,
most are amazing people.
Always willing to help others,
wanting to make people happy.

A peaceful conversation,
where all angles are seen and heard...
that will make real change!

People say,
vengeance is sweet...
That is a lie!
For the pen is stronger than the sword.......

Jack C. Boeve

Jack Boeve is a new age poet with an old style twist. He Started writing for fun in 7th grade But didn't start posting his work until late 2020. On occasions he goes by the alias "John Dow" in order to stay hidden if he doesn't want recognition, but on the contrary he will also give some hints on how to find him if you desire to speak with him. His poems speak of his heart but some are made for the reader to think on. more…
