POLICEMAN

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

 

 

Policeman! Throngs of multitudes are

Waiting for your return to civility!

 

On account of the erosion of your image

As a reliable enforcer of statutes

By your recalcitrant engagements in

Extortions and rackets and every condemnable

Act that are well perceived by the periscopic oculars

Of the consummate public;

 

Come home, policeman! Come home

To the moral niche of civility!

 

For to extract money from laboring motorists

Traders and pedlars who may no more

Be better than the poorest fellows

Of yours whose every cent that you

Embezzle will accrue to the rupture

Of the noblest dignity;

 

Come home, policeman! Come home

To the powerhouse of civility!

 

For to bust striking workingment or to

Train guns on dissenting marchers or to

Equate to criminal acts those that are

Worthy of appreciation as they are

Motivated by desires for justice

Will cost you your sweet acceptance

By the same people whom you ought to protect;

 

Come home, policeman! Come home to

The sanctuary of civility!

 

People are surely waiting for you

Not excluding the gunslinging predators

Who are out to snatch your life

For your treachery and malevolence.

 

[Writ. 06 June, AUF, Angeles City, Pampanga]
