"Revenge Served Cold" 

Prince George's County Police Department

This poem dedicated to all Law Enforcement Officers who made the Supreme Sacrifice, and to those who remain, who never forget how, or at whose hands they died from.

A Parole Board you impressed
With your words of remorse
Through cunning and lies
You chart a new course

Back to the streets
To the crime you once knew
A cop now lies buried
Thanks only to you

So now you're a free man
You'll soon feel a cringe
I've baked you a cake
Let's call it revenge

I don't mince my words
For now you've been told
This cake called revenge
Is served best when cold

Enjoy the minutes
They're ticking so fast
The next once you live
Might be your last

And should you find heaven
By some quirk of fate
A Policeman is waiting
He's guarding the gate


Elmer L. Snow, III
