I Was Taught Respect

From a young child
respect was taught
for those whose lives
our safety bought

It mattered not
what badge they wore
more important
the oath they swore

A debt we owed
of gratitude
freely given
without attitude

Killing police
condoned by blacks
proves just what
this country lacks

Following God
His laws to keep
was in our hearts
conviction deep

Yet to believe
today brings scorn
an evil soul
in us was born

If once again
we put God first
He’d prosper us
and lift our curse!
