open letter from a police officer
You say we don’t care
Your lives are at risk too
This concern you think we do not share
How is it that in such a small country, the murder toll is 400 a year?
If this isn't Iraq, it’s surely damn near
Its all gang related, that’s what you constantly hear
But to hold back the truth, I can no longer bare
What can I do if my superior is corrupt?
What can I do if in every political party there’s a rot?
Child after child everyday another shot
But I can’t take the blame, Oh’ no I’ll not
I’m just a lowly Constable, just here filling my spot
The only problem is that any time I’m on a beat, I could end up dead...shot.
Officer John Doe
