(A police officer was killed in the line of duty in my home town the other day. He had barely been on the force for a year.)

Lower the flags in honour
Bow your heads in prayer
I heard another hero died today
How much sorrow must we bear?

‘Justice will be served’ is bitter comfort
for the wife, brother, parent, and child
Let us never forget the courage
or the sacrifices made in their lives

The thin blue line stands strong
It may bend but will never fail
Tho’ each heart may bleed for the fallen,
it always soldiers on to answer the call.
