MY BROTHER

On a cold slick morning Snow and ice veils the ground The pager is going off “An officer is down!” As I drive my patrol car Flashing red and blue lights The siren is wailing Piercing the night The radio was silent Then my heart started to yelp When I heard his voice Begging for help He’s been struck by a semi Trying to close a road All I can do, is pray As I keep driving in code As I get to the scene His unit looks bad Please LORD be with him Stay strong…Chad Thoughts cross my mind As the drama uncovers He’s going to be okay Thanks for not taking MY BROTHER __________________________ A TRUE ACCOUNT
