A Cop on the Take

First they take the oath.
Now look at all they take -

They take it in their stride when people call them a pig.
They take time to stop and talk to children. 
They take your verbal abuse while giving you a ticket you really deserve. 
They take on creeps you would be afraid to even look at.

They take time away from their family to keep you safe. 
They take your injured children to the hospital. 
They take the graveyard shift without complaint because it's their turn. 
They take their life into their hands daily.

They take you home when your car breaks down. 
They take time to explain why both you headlights have to work. 
They take the job no one else wants - telling you a loved one has died. 
They take criminals to jail.

They take in sights that would make you cry.
Sometimes they cry too, but they take it anyway because someone has to.
If they are lucky, they take retirement. 
They take memories to bed each night that you couldn't bear for even one day.

Sometimes, They Take a bullet.

And, yes, occasionally They may Take a free cup of coffee.
Then one day they pay for all they have taken,
and God takes them.
