My Job: Will O'Brien, policeman

By: Ryan Fitzgerald

I met a woman
Old as dirt
Yet nice as the morning sun,
Living where some considered
The worst part of town
Yet somehow
She finds time
To knit me a sweater
Of dark green string
Straight from the soul
With kindness from the heart
All because
I did my job
And called an ambulance
As a good man should
For a nice old lady
