"Police Officers"   

They put their lives on the line everyday
These men and women who we should thank
Instead we hurl accusations at them
We yell at them for mistakes we make
We kill them

They have one of the highest stress rates
Suicide rates
Divorce rates
And we have the nerve to beat them down

They save our lives everyday
But all we think about is how they are pulling us over
To give us a ticket, making us late

You are the real-life heroes of our time
Thank you for doing a thankless job
Thank you for making our streets safe
For us, for our kids.
For me.
