The Lights went out in Dallas

Picture from

Shots rang out from up above
Breaking harmony that had prevailed
Men and women watched in horror
Bodies dropped by those impaled.
Chaos exploded in the night
Reminiscent of another night
So long ago yet still so fresh
Detroit burned from hatreds firelight.
To all the men and women
Who protect us every day
Who lay their lives upon the line
Not for glory; not for pay.
Gratitude is not incentive
To do the jobs they are assigned
Their belief is to protect and serve
A brotherhood; their souls entwined.
So, thank you all who choose to serve
Who wear the badge; the fallen too
May their stars shine bright within the sky
God bless the brave, the proud, the few.
