It’s true some things do get better with age
There’s wine, cheese, and me of course,
But something’s getting much worse with age
The brutal attacks on our loved police force.
Far too many flags have been draped
Over the bodies of brave women and men,
I’ve asked myself over and over
When did these horrible attacks begin?
You can research back to see years ago
Find which police officer died and how,
Their deaths back then were also bad
But look at how they’re being killed now!
So many brutal and hateful murders
Tho it should be stopping it’s on the rise,
Hearts are breaking across the country
Families suffering, tears in their eyes.
Our brave heroes are being exterminated
As if they don’t deserve to live,
How long in God’s name will this go on
The killers I just can’t forgive.
No matter when or where they go
Not knowing which breath may be their last,
They’re heroes, who keep pushing on
If it were me I’d quit, and FAST!
